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
