Measuring our Canadian content
Regulatory requirements for Canadian content on television are specified by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), which sets conditions of license for ICI RADIO-CANADA TÉLÉ and CBC Television. For the whole broadcast day, a minimum of 75% Canadian content is required. For prime time, a minimum of 80% Canadian content is required. Both measures are averages over the entire broadcast year from September 1 to August 31. As shown in the table below, in the previous two broadcast years, ICI RADIO-CANADA TÉLÉ and CBC Television exceeded the CRTC's Canadian content conditions of license, both over the whole day and in prime time.
