Given the dramatic economic and social changes that are now unfolding before us, we need informed, engaged citizens who can seize opportunities and confidently react to challenges. Public media organizations have a mandate to serve citizens, and this puts them in a unique position to add value and opportunity in this period of change. The CBC is in the process of conducting a major strategic review both internally and through outside regulators. The question is, who will shape the CBC of the future? We think you should. We’ll bring the best ideas to the CBC, and together we’ll work with decision-makers to turn your ideas into reality.
