Issues

We’re too often told “Canadian content” is just a synonym for second-rate. But Canadian content isn’t a joke. It’s our lives, our perspectives, our news, our stories, our values, our voices. We have a choice to be spectators to the cultural and political life of the United States or protagonists in our own.

Mission

FRIENDS is a people-powered movement that stands up for Canadian voices, in public broadcasting, news media and culture. A strong CBC, fearless journalism, and our shared story make us who we are. But if our stories disappear, so do we. That’s why FRIENDS conducts leading-edge policy and opinion research on issues affecting Canadian culture and media, and works tirelessly so that Ottawa understands that millions of Canadians demand our government restores our public broadcaster, defends Canadian journalism, and supports great Canadian stories on air and online. FRIENDS is not affiliated with or funded by CBC/Radio-Canada or any other media outlet, industry group or political party.
