The CRTC released two reports Monday that reiterated its commitment to official-language minority communities. The commission said the reports highlight recent decisions that will lead to increased representation for official-language minority communities and improved access to the broadcasting system. “OLMCs have increased their participation in processes that affect their development,” Konrad von Finckenstein, chair of the commission, said in a release. “They have shared their viewpoints and priorities. As a result, the commission can systematically take OLMC interests into account in its analyses and deliberations.” The CRTC said one of its initiatives required Shaw Communications Inc. to provide satellite receivers, antennas, installation and free programming to qualifying minority official language households. “This requirement will ensure affected viewers continue to receive the signals of their local and regional stations through Shaw Direct after the transition to digital television,” the CRTC said. The commission said that, through its website and working groups, it will continue to inform minority official language communities of relevant issues and seek their participation in public proceedings.
