The CRTC has launched a review of its nearly three-decade-old Indigenous broadcasting policy. In an effort to maximize opportunities for Indigenous people to shape the new policy, the Commission is taking a three-phase co-development approach.
Phase I (early engagement sessions) will allow Indigenous broadcasters, content creators and artists within the Indigenous broadcasting creative community in Canada to participate in engagement sessions across Canada and contribute to determining the process and scope of the public consultation.
