Canadian content in a digital world


Consultations Web portal is now closed to submissions

On September 13, 2016, Minister Mélanie Joly launched consultations on "Canadian Content in a Digital World". During this exercise, all Canadians were invited to join the conversation and have their say on how to strengthen the creation, discovery and export of Canadian content in a digital world.

Thank you all for your participation and for the enthusiasm you have shown throughout this process. Preliminary numbers indicate that approximately 30,000 Canadians demonstrated an interest in our #DigiCanCon consultations through various platforms, including in-person events, the Web portal and social media engagement.

The information gathered since September 13th will be tabulated and analysed by Ipsos, an independent firm specializing in data analysis and reporting.

Please continue to regularly visit our web portal to consult the reference materials as well as view all the contributions made by Canadians from across the country. The portal will also be periodically updated with information regarding the next steps, including the release of the final report prepared by Ipsos. We anticipate that this report will be released in the coming weeks.
