Canada enjoys a distinct cultural and democratic identity that joins us together and sets us apart. In every generation, vigilant citizens have fought against powerful interests to carve out space for Canada in the broadcasting system, so that our culture and identity can develop and evolve.
FRIENDS works to advance Canada’s rich culture and the healthy democracy it sustains. A strong CBC, fearless journalism, and our shared story make us who we are. We conduct leading-edge policy and opinion research on issues affecting Canadian media and related issues. This research demonstrates that millions of citizens care deeply about the future of Canadian media, journalism, and programming, so we also work tirelessly to advocate on their behalf by bringing this information to decision-makers in Ottawa, and we give Canadians opportunities to become participate in these campaigns.
