Who We Are

Who we are header

Friends of Canadian Media is a non-partisan citizens’ movement that stands up for Canadian voices in Canadian media – from public broadcasting to news, entertainment, culture, and online civil discourse, we work to protect and defend Canada’s rich cultural sovereignty and the healthy democracy it sustains. We are a not-for-profit organization that receives no government funding or donations from political parties or CRTC-regulated entities. 

At Friends of Canadian Media, we envision a culturally sovereign Canada, protected, and enhanced by a media ecosystem that nurtures and promotes Canadian values and diverse storytelling. Through advocacy, research, and engagement, we help amplify support for public broadcasting and the protection and promotion of Canadian voices in news, culture, and entertainment. Our goal is to influence the environment in which cultural media policy is developed and implemented to protect Canadian storytelling for generations to come.
