CBC released its 2016-2017 Annual Report. The year saw an increase in spending on external programming as well as advertising revenue. In February, CBC announced it would spent 92 million on Canadian content in 2017-2018. In its Strategic plan launched in 2014, the CBC established the goal of connecting with 18 million Canadians and it has nearly hit that mark. The broadcaster will continue on this path by commissioning additional scripted content and documentaries. See the Playback analyses of the Strategy 2020 and CBC’s financials.
