Local Media Research
A diverse media environment is a necessary component of a community’s ability to develop and retain a healthy local culture; whether, artistic, economic, or political. CCS media research investigates the policy frameworks that act to restrict local media diversity as well as engaging in governance processes in order make the broadcasting system more responsive to local concerns.

Intervention for Broadcast Notice of Public Hearing CRTC 2006-5: The review of the CRTC Television Policy presents the Commission with a real opportunity to address serious problems that have developed in the broadcasting environment over the last seven years. It is crucially important that at this time when the private Canadian media system is owned by such a small number of interests that the CRTC stand firm in its role as the regulator of the public service obligations for broadcasting in the country. This can best be achieved by respecting the Commission’s own commitment to ensuring that a healthy diversity of voices is available in local communities and regions across Canada.
