We are coming together to share ideas, and our teams are exploring new ways to work together: amplifying our public service missions, bringing our audiences the best ideas, and investing in our local creative industries, said Tony Hall and Catherine Tait

The BBC and CBC/Radio-Canada today announced a commitment to future collaboration across a range of different areas. The agreement was made between Tony Hall, Director-General BBC, and Catherine Tait, President and CEO, CBC/Radio-Canada, on the occasion of the 82nd General Assembly of the European Broadcasting Union in Oslo, Norway last week.

In a joint statement, Hall and Tait commented: In an increasingly global marketplace, Canadian and British audiences want programmes and services about their lives and their culture. In divided times, its never been more important to reflect and represent every part of our diverse communities. And in a world where disinformation spreads in a flash, we need public media to bring the whole of society the news and analysis that it can trust - what is really going on and why it matters.

As we reinvent how we deliver our services for new generations, we are coming together to share ideas, and our teams are exploring new ways to work together: amplifying our public service missions, bringing our audiences the best ideas, and investing in our local creative industries. Through this partnership we will bring the best stories to audiences across the UK and Canada, and around the world.
