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.

3. The obligation falls to the community producer to ensure the program meets all copyright and usage rules prior to the start of production.
4. Your submission is not eligible if;
- You are employed by the companies of BCE or other Broadcast Distribution undertakings.
