Community Media Policy Survey Draw Winner

Thanks to the more than 400 of you who completed the Community Media Policy Survey. This response was unprecedented given the modest size of Canada's community media sector (fewer than 200 radio stations,100 community-operated TV studios, and a few handfuls of online and gaming groups). We are excited to think that for the first time we can offer policy-makers insight into what community media practitioners believe our sector as a whole needs to fulfill our role effectively in the digital environment.
