The Canadian Television Fund has made more staffing changes recently. Joining the fund’s administrative team in the role of VP of strategic policy planning and stakeholder relations is Stéphane Cardin, who will have responsibility for developing policy initiative stakeholder relations and strategic business plans. He comes from the Quebec government’s Société de développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC) where he worked for nine years in a variety of roles, most recently as general director of the cultural funding agency’s tax credit programs. Before SODEC, Cardin worked for the Canadian Audio-Visual Certification Office as an analyst.
Also joining the CTF is Nikki Oberdieck, who will assume the role of director of program management. She recently served as director of regulatory affairs and policy strategy at CTV Inc., and worked elsewhere within the Bell Globemedia empire before that. She will be charged with overseeing the CTF’s relationship with Telefilm Canada, the federal government agency which now handles much of the fund’s administration, and working with Telefilm on implementing new program guidelines and revisiting existing ones periodically.
