In October 2017, the CRTC launched a consultation on the distribution and programming models of the future. In June 2018, the CDEC organized the event “What Future for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions Online?” to allow the public to get acquainted with the CRTC’s report, to hear the reactions of representatives of the cultural community involved in the consultations, and to discuss the issues raised in this consultation.

Invited by the CDCE Suzanne Lamarre delivered her analysis of the report. Here is her presentation.
