Application 2011-1406-6

Teletoon/Télétoon – Licence amendment

1.      The Commission approves the application by TELETOON Canada Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the national English- and French-language specialty service Teletoon/Télétoon to avail itself of additional programming flexibility, consistent with the policy established in Regulatory frameworks for broadcasting distribution undertakings and discretionary programming services – Regulatory policy, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-100, 30 October 2008.

2.      Specifically, the Commission replaces the current condition of licence 1(b) for the service with the following condition:

The licensee may draw programming from all the program categories set out in item 6 of Schedule I to the Specialty Services Regulations, 1990, as amended from time to time.

3.      The Commission notes that it received a comment from the Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA) relating to terms of trade, to which the applicant replied. The public record for this application is available on the Commission’s website at under “Public Proceedings.” The Commission is satisfied with the applicant’s reply and considers that the issue raised by the CMPA would be more appropriately addressed at the upcoming licence renewals for independent services, which are scheduled for the fall of 2012.
