Encyclopedia > Canadian Broadcast Standards Council

The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council is an independent, non-governmental organization created by the Canadian Association of Broadcasters to administer standards established by its members, Canada's private broadcasters.

The Council's membership includes more than 530 private sector radio and television stations, specialty services and networks from across Canada, programming in English, French and third languages. As such, the Council allows the private broadcasting industry to be self-regulating and it acts as an intermediary in the regulatory process, which is governed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC, in French Conseil de la radiodiffusion et des télécommunications canadiennes) was established in 1968 by the Canadian Parliament to replace the Board of Broadcast Governors. ...

Although first suggested by private broadcasters as early as 1968, the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council was not created until 1990. 1968 was a leap year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1968 calendar). ... 1990 is a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
