Share your views on the future of programming in Canada
Special to the Post
MP Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is encouraging residents to share their views on how they will access audio and video content in the coming years and impacts on the Canadian market.
“I have heard from many constituents regarding concerns they have related to the future of Canadian programming,” stated MP Eglinski. “This is a great opportunity for constituents to submit this feedback directly to the CRTC and have their views considered in future decisions.”
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has begun the first phase of a consultation that arises from the Government of Canada’s request that the CRTC submit a report on future distribution models for Canadian programming, as well as its continued creation, production and distribution. The report is due by June 1, 2018.
Residents can participate by filling out an online form that can be found at www.crtc.gc.ca, or write to the Secretary General at: Secretary General CRTC Ottawa, ON K1A 0N2
Comments collected will help shape the second phase of the public consultation. Further details related to the format and deadlines of the second phase will be shared at a later date. The CRTC is accepting comments until November 24, 2017.
“Today’s media environment is fast-paced and constantly evolving. We need to ensure that the CRTC has all the information it requires to make informed decisions so that Canadians have access to services that meet their diverse interests while protecting Canadian jobs,” concluded MP Eglinski.
