Industry Initiatives Recommended by the Task Force on Cultural Diversity on Television

In its report Reflecting Canadians - Best Practices for Cultural Diversity in Private Television, the Task Force for Cultural Diversity on Television also identified the need to advance cultural diversity initiatives through an industry-wide approach, which fully engages the non-regulated segment of the industry.

The Task Force noted that while broadcasters can act as a catalyst for change, it is not possible to be fully effective without equal commitment to diversity objectives, and on-going cooperation and participation from industry stakeholders including producers, actors, directors, writers, funding agencies or other bodies.

Recognizing the importance of having industry sectors cooperate with each other on diversity initiatives, the Task Force recommended 11 industry initiatives targeted primarily at encouraging partnerships and ensuring on-going communication amongst industry stakeholders in order to advance the state of diversity within the broadcasting industry.
