The Community Media Policy Working Group has published a draft set of values common to all community media based on eight themes identified by survey and focus group participants earlier this fall, as summarized in the report Community Media in the Digital Age: Relic or Renewal?

The bilingual statement is available below.

Conference goers and the general public can comment on it in our Online Policy Forum.

The Working Group checks the forum every week to incorporate your feedback into its on-going work. This week, the Group is working to identify whether community media on the ground in Canada currently meet these values or goals in practice, drawing on comments from survey and focus group respondents. Watch this space!
