Canadian content in a digital world

What We Heard Across Canada Consultation Report

In September 2016, Minister Joly launched an important step in an ambitious cultural policy review – far-reaching consultations to explore how to strengthen the creation, discovery and export of Canadian content in a digital world. We invited Canadians to share their ideas, solutions and vision during in-person events, on our web portal and on social media. Submissions, summaries of the meetings and the What We Heard Across Canada Consultation Report, prepared by Ipsos Public Affairs, are based on the input of tens of thousands of Canadians. This input will play a key role in informing next steps as we prepare to modernize our cultural policy toolkit - one that is better suited to today’s digital reality.
