  • For the minority coproducer, at least three technicians, one leading performer and two supporting performers.
  • All participants in the coproduction must be Canadian or Czech, or permanent residents of Canada or residents in Czech Republic. Participation of one third-party country performer may be permitted, subject to the approval by the competent authorities.
