CBC position on CTF

OTTAWA, Feb. 15 /CNW Telbec/ – Representatives of CBC/Radio-Canada presented their position on the Canadian Television Fund (CTF) today in an appearance before the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage as part of the Committee’s study on the future of the Fund.
"We are relieved to see that the Minister and the CRTC have taken action to ensure that all players in the broadcasting system play by the rules and respect their regulatory obligations," CBC/Radio-Canada President and CEO, Robert Rabinovitch said. "Given the importance of the Fund to the broadcasting system, it is vital that all stakeholders, including independent producers, are part of any discussion – at the CRTC or elsewhere – of any changes affecting support for Canadian production."

CBC/Radio-Canada does not receive any money from the Fund, however, 37 per cent of the CTF’s budget for productions is earmarked for CBC/Radio-Canada because it is the single largest investor in original Canadian programming.

The envelope recognizes that CBC/Radio-Canada is the only broadcaster with the "shelf space" to offer mostly Canadian programs when Canadians are watching television, that is during prime time – which is one of the key objectives of the Fund.
