CBC and ICI Radio-Canada ranked top influential broadcast media brands in Canada and Quebec in 2014

February 13, 2015

Both CBC and ICI Radio-Canada are ranked as Canada’s and Quebec’s most influential broadcast media brands in 2014.

Earlier this year, the Institute of Communication Agencies (ICA) and marketing and public opinion research firm Ipsos Reid released the list of the top 100 Most Influential Brands in Canada in 2014, ranking CBC in the top 3 Canadian brands, first among broadcasters and #13 overall.

In a 2014 survey for the Quebec market, announced by IPSOS QUÉBEC-INFOPRESSE, ICI Radio-Canada was ranked as the 7th most influential brand, and is the most revered media brand, ahead of TVA and La Presse. In a separate study, ICI Radio-Canada was also ranked as the 6th most admired brand by Léger Marketing in 2014.

"These strong results confirm the role that the public broadcaster plays in the everyday lives of Canadians," said Bill Chambers, Vice-President, Brand, Communications and Corporate Affairs. "Recent ratings successes such as Book of Negroes and Unité 9 also show that we continue to be a destination for entertainment in prime time, and speak to our continuing relevance."

The Most Influential Brands Studies examine five key dimensions that define and determine the most influential brands in Canada, including Corporate Citizenship, Engagement, Leading Edge, Presence, and Trustworthiness.

More information about these studies is available on the Ipsos Reid website:
