CRTC | Canadian Media Producers Association


The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is mandated under the Broadcasting Act to regulate and supervise Canada’s broadcasting system. The CRTC reports to Parliament through the Minister of Canadian Heritage.

Section 3 of the Broadcasting Act outlines Canada’s broadcasting policy. Among other objectives, the Act requires that each element of the broadcasting system shall contribute in an appropriate manner to the creation and presentation of Canadian programming. The Act also requires that the programming provided by broadcasters should include a significant contribution from the Canadian independent production sector.

Whenever a Canadian broadcaster competes for a new television licence, applies for a licence renewal, or make a new acquisition, it must apply to the CRTC for approval. The Commission also regularly initiates policy proceedings.

The CMPA intervenes in these proceedings to give the regulatory body the perspective of Canadian independent producers.

The CMPA archives these written interventions on our website for two calendar years. If you have questions about previous interventions please contact Erin Finlay. Email Jay Thomson
