Consultation about registration of online streaming services

Status: Decision issued

The CRTC’s decision requires online streaming services that operate in Canada, offer broadcasting content, and earn $10 million or more in annual revenues to complete a registration form by November 28, 2023.

This consultation ran from May 12, 2023 to June 12, 2023.
