CRTC

ABOUT

CND Radio – Television & Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) regulates all Canadian broadcasting & telecommunications activities and certain content communicated over the Internet including audio and video, but excluding alphanumeric content such as emails and most webpages. CRTC enforces rules it creates to carry out the policies assigned to it; the best-known being Canadian Content Rules. CRTC reports to the Parliament of Canada through the Minister of Canadian Heritage, which is responsible for the Broadcasting Act, and has an informal relationship with Industry Canada, which is responsible for the Telecommunications Act. Provisions in these two acts, along with less-formal instructions issued by the federal cabinet known as Orders-in-Council, represent the bulk of the CRTC’s jurisdiction.
