The Coalition for Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) have launched an outreach campaign, “Stand Up for C-11,” to support Bill C-11, the new Online Streaming Act.

The bill aims to have large online streamers contribute their fair share to the Canadian cultural ecosystem, correcting years of glaring inequities. It will ensure that Canadian creations and productions have an important place on our airwaves and screens. By ensuring that the Broadcasting Act is finally adapted to the new digital environment, Canadian music and audiovisual works will enjoy greater recognition around the world.

The Broadcasting Act has not been reviewed in over 30 years and is one of the most important cultural policies in Canada. The Online Streaming Act will have important repercussions for all songwriters, composers, screen composers, and music publishers in Canada, so making your voice heard surrounding the debate is essential.

It’s time for online streamers to contribute to the creation, development, and dissemination of Canadian content. If you care about culture, take a moment to show your support for Bill C-11: it’s a gesture that will make a big difference.
