COLLABORATING WITH EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

ICTV-MTL will seek production relationships with other film and video co-operatives and independent and community media organizations in Canada and Quebec to enhance opportunities for World Majority and Indigenous Nations to create and access content.

ICTV-MTL has support from universities interested to design educational and employment tracks to benefit World Majority and Indigenous students who would like to gain accreditation and receive employment in the video production industry.

ICTV-MTL has received letters of support from well-regarded communications and journalism departments in Canadian universities--this includes the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), University of Ottawa, and York and Ryerson Universities in Toronto.

ICTV-MTL

Television has changed the world. The time has come to change television. ICTV‑MTL is composed of a group of people who came together out of concern over the current state of television in this country, and more particularly, in the Greater Montreal Region. One need not be an expert to glance over the media landscape and to quickly realize that a handful of private entities are in charge of our airwaves. The dream is to break this monopoly and to build a television station run, by and for, our communities.
This act of imagination becoming reality is not only vital for the strengthening and empowerment of our communities but is also a critical condition for the improvement of democracy.


« Montréal et Canada ont absolument besoin de ce type de télévision reflétant le caractère pluraliste de la principale ville du Québec. »
