Rebooting Canada’s communications laws (May 22 to 23, 2015: Ottawa)
The University of Ottawa’s Centre on Governance and FRPC are co-sponsoring a two-day policy and law conference focussing on Canada’s broadcasting and telecommunications legislation and whether these statutes should be changed.
Eight panel sessions will examine issues related to communications sovereignty and the use of new content distribution services, the socio-cultural objectives of Canada’s communications legislation, lessons from the last 50 years and whether they can be applied to the regulation of electronic communications in the 21st century cultural employment, media ownership, and the availability of evidence needed for public participation. The conference will also include a discussion of ethical issues related to broadcasting and telecommunications regulation.
The conference’s speakers, panellists and moderators include policy and legal experts from the private sector and universities.
