Submission Guidelines

We're excited that you expressed interest in TV1.
Learn what you need to get started and submit your idea.

You can apply if you are:

An individual or group who resides in one of the communities where we’re currently producing community TV:

Ontario: Hamilton/Niagara, Kingston, Kitchener (including Barrie & surrounding area), London, Oshawa, Ottawa (EN/FR), Peterborough and Windsor
Québec: Gatineau, Joliette, Québec City (EN/FR), Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières
Atlantic: Fredericton, Halifax, Saint John, St John’s, and all other markets served by Bell Aliant Fibe TV
Manitoba: Brandon, Portage la Prairie, Selkirk and Winnipeg.

Please note that following a recent CRTC decision, which allows companies to re-direct a portion of community funding to local news, TV1 will no longer operate in Toronto and Montreal. While closing TV1 in these communities was a difficult decision, Bell will, as a result, significantly increase its investment in the production of locally reflective news programming in these markets.

Your involvement would be as:

  • an on-camera role (e.g., a personality or actor that appears in a predominant portion of the production); and/or
  • a creative member of the production crew (e.g., director, producer, writer).

Make your idea locally relevant and reflective of the community:

Abandoned Manitoba:
Local author and historian Gordon Goldsborough unearths the incredible untold stories behind some of Manitoba’s least known historic sites.
Sunshine City:
While filming a travel series in Orillia, Ontario, the show’s host, its crew, and the town are soon wrapped up in a comedic mystery that explores what it means to be part of a community.

You can’t apply if:

  • You are employed by the companies of BCE.
  • The program is part of a commercial venture.
  • The program does not comply with regulations set out by the CRTC.
  • The program is not relevant to and reflective of the community.
