The Sessions

Policy might not seem like a hot topic - except when it is. Like right now. Canada’s media sector is on the verge of a historic pivot…or not. The stakes are high because the ability of Canadian media creators (in new and legacy media) to engage global audiences - and therefore to make money - may be at risk. New legislation will impact Canada’s domestic industry and its partners in Hollywood and around the world. Media policy expert and host, Irene Berkowitz PhD, digs for truth about Canada’s newly proposed bill, C-11, The Online Streaming Act. The Sessions is a co-production between The Creative School at Ryerson University and Playback, a publication of Brunico Communications.
