Canadian content is who we are. Our news and stories secure our decent, democratic society and help us build a better country for all.

When elections roll around, politicians pay extra attention to what voters value. FRIENDS’ nonpartisan election activism makes the most of this rare opportunity, by mobilizing Canadians to put their support for Canadian journalism and storytelling on display. The more we say, “I AM CANADIAN CONTENT”, the more politicians will understand what they need to do to win our votes: restore our public broadcaster, defend Canadian journalism, and support great Canadian stories on air and online.

We’re fighting to defend Canadian culture and democracy.
