CBC Quebec holds CRTC public consultation and webcast for English-speaking minority community

February 18, 2015

CBC Quebec invites members of the English-speaking community to attend a public consultation with webcast to discuss CBC programming and its services for English-speaking Quebec on Tuesday, February 24.

As part of its CRTC Conditions of Licence, CBC/Radio-Canada is committed to consulting with the English-speaking official minority communities every two years. This official consultation and discussion will be reported to the CRTC. Our annual English and French-language services reports to the CRTC can be found here.

CBC/Radio-Canada’s new local strategy is about changing how we serve the audience. The public broadcaster is moving to become a comprehensive four-platform local news service -- across the day and on demand. In addition to serving the audience on CBC Radio, CBC Television and cbc.ca, CBC/Radio-Canada will develop new mobile and digital services. The consultation will centre on how CBC can use these four platforms -- mobile, web, radio and television -- to continue telling stories, exchanging and engaging with English-speaking Canadians living in Quebec.

The public is encouraged to send questions in advance or during the event to mtlcomm@cbc.ca or through Twitter @CBCMontreal using the hashtag #CBCconsults.

What: CRTC public consultation and webcast with CBC leadership and journalists to discuss CBC programming and services.
