In October 2017, the CRTC issued Broadcasting Notice of Consultation CRTC 2017-359, a call for comments on the Governor in Council’s s. 15 request for a report on future programming distribution models.

IO consulted with our members via a list of emailed discussion questions. Based on the responses received, we focused our submission on highlighting the importance of discoverability as platforms emerge and evolve. IO noted the importance of affiliated digital media for broadcast discoverability and reiterated our position that the 10% cap on non-programming digital content for Certified Independent Production Funds was a mistake that should be reversed.
