An agreement has been reached between CBC/Radio-Canada and the Canadian Federation of Musicians that encompasses all content platforms – radio, television and digital – into one agreement.
The new agreement is a significant departure from previous agreements between CBC/Radio-Canada and musicians, actors and writers as it merges all content platforms – radio, television and digital – into one agreement. The new terms and conditions allow enormous flexibility essential to record and use music content across all of our platforms. It also streamlines distribution and licensing requirements, while lowering administration costs.
CBC/Radio-Canada is Canada’s national public broadcaster and one of its largest cultural institutions. The Corporation is a leader in reaching Canadians on new platforms and delivers a comprehensive range of radio, television, internet, and satellite-based services. Deeply rooted in the regions, CBC/Radio-Canada is the only domestic broadcaster to offer diverse regional and cultural perspectives in English, French and eight Aboriginal languages.
A space for us all is CBC/Radio-Canada’s strategy to transform the public broadcaster, and ensure that it continues to fulfill its mandate for Canadians, now and for future generations. Through to 2020, the Corporation will increase its investment in prime-time television programming and continue to create radio programs of the highest quality, while promoting the development of digital and mobile platforms and content.
