Content Made by Canadians
One of our goals is to ensure that Canadian broadcasting content meets the needs and interests of Canadians by delivering compelling, high-quality Canadian-made creative content from diverse sources on a variety of platforms.
Among other things, we engage in public processes that:
- generate content policies,
- encourage linguistic duality,
- support public affairs programming, and
- support broadcasting for Canada’s diverse communities.
We also support the maintenance and development of Canadian talent by ensuring that Canadian artists can:
- create content for both Canadian and global audiences,
- that they can gain financial support, and
- that they can promote their creations.
Other ongoing activities related to content made by Canadians include:
- Analyzing various broadcasting licence applications from the perspective of content made by Canadians
- Issuing Canadian Program Certification to independent Canadian program producers for TV productions that use mainly Canadian crews and talents
- Monitoring the programming and financial performance of broadcasters to ensure they comply with regulations and licence conditions
- Content that meets the needs and interests of Canadians
- So what makes it Canadian?
- Understanding industry responsibilities
