TVO funding in the 2012 Ontario Budget

TVO funding in the 2012 Ontario Budget

on
April 10th, 2012

Dalton McGuinty's last budget used soothing language, but the intent was clear: TVO and the quality programs it produces are coming under the knife of funding cuts.

TVO

TVO is funded primarily by the Ministry of Education and has been providing quality educational programming to Ontarians for more than 40 years. TVO is pursuing opportunities to generate new revenue streams. The government will work with the agency to help it achieve these goals, while protecting the integrity of children’s educational programs. TVO will generate new revenue to reduce its dependence on government grants, while remaining publicly owned. This will allow it to continue as a publicly owned broadcaster providing innovative educational media while focusing taxpayer dollars on providing greater access to education.
