Consultation to Co-Develop an Indigenous Broadcasting Policy


We would like to inform you about how the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is collaborating closely with Indigenous peoples to co-develop an Indigenous broadcasting policy.

In 2019, the CRTC issued a Notice of Proceeding, committing to collaborating with Indigenous people to co-develop the Indigenous Broadcasting Policy. The next step in the process to co-develop the policy is a public consultation. Through this consultation, views are being gathered on how to support Indigenous broadcasters and content creators, and to ensure Indigenous stories and voices are represented, easily found, and shared across all platforms.

Participate in the consultation and share your views with the CRTC. Details on how to participate will be shared with you shortly.

Missing Children Phase 3 (MCP3)

National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation

The NCTR completed the MCP1 and MCP2 This included the development of the National Memorial List. The National Memorial Register was created to forever remember and honor the children who never returned home from residential schools.

This memorial register was the result of the dedicated work of countless people and the advice, guidance and blessings from Survivors, Elders and Knowledge Keepers. It will forever remember, honor and acknowledge those children who died while attending a residential school in Canada.

Missing Children Phase 3 (MCP3)
MCP3 is soon to begin, and we will be establishing additional staff dedicated to this project which involves Call to Action #’s 72 and 73. We will soon be reaching out to First Nation communities and organizations first formally by letter across Canada to provide awareness and analyze participation of the MCP3 project. We need your help to complete this phase. This is your opportunity to have a voice for information sharing. We want to ensure that we have community involvement to provide guidance in developing nationally cultural safe procedures when reaching out to family members in confirming what names have been found for accuracy during MCP2.

Our end goal is to add the recent names to our memorial register and gather community input into creating a national student burial register, while commemorating, memorializing and honoring students who did not return home. The steps to achieve this involve a trauma informed approach and community guidance for best practices.
