Unlike traditional broadcasters of film, television, and music, online broadcasters have no legal obligation to invest in Canadian content and, as a matter of fact, they invest little in Canadian content, and especially in French-language content.

  • For example, the Association des réalisateurs et des réalisatrices du Québec estimates that only 0.3% of the $2.5 billion invested since 2017 in Canada by Netflix has been for original French-language productions.
