Ontario takes next step in transforming TVO into a new media learning centre

The expansion of the new media division of TVOntario is expected to be a slow bureaucratic affair as the provincial educational broadcaster absorbs the Independent Learning Centre. Different unions and the involvement of two different provincial ministries are generating red tape for the transfer of resources and staff positions from the centre to TVOntario. The centre, currently under the Ministry of Education, will be shifted to the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities, under which the provincial broadcaster operates at arm’s length.
