  Canadian content - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Canadian content (cancon or can-con) refers to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission requirements that radio and television broadcasters (including cable/satellite specialty channels) must air a certain percentage of content that was at least partly written, produced, presented, or otherwise contributed to by persons from Canada.
In 2006, the Canadian Association of Broadcasters, in a submission to the CRTC, proposed a reduction in Canadian content regulation to 25 per cent, arguing that conventional radio was facing increased competition from alternative music sources such as Internet radio, satellite radio and iPods.
In another submission, however, Friends of Canadian Broadcasting argued that the Canadian broadcasting industry is in a healthy position and did not need to have the Canadian content rules relaxed.

 Canadian cultural protectionism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sharing a large border and (for the majority) a common language with the United States, Canada faces a difficult position in regard to American culture, be it direct attempts at the Canadian market or the general diffusion of American culture in the globalized media arena.
In its inception, the quota system said that 45% of all content broadcast on the airwaves must be Canadian in origin.
The report also looked at Canadian children's general knowledge of their government and most could not identify the Canadian head of state (Queen Elizabeth II) and the basis for Canada's law and founding (the British North America Act 1867).

 Canadian Content Rules
The resulting Canadian content rules, which came to be known as "Cancon," were devised to stimulate Canada's cultural production by ensuring greater exposure for Canadian artists in Canada's marketplaces.
Private television licensees generally must achieve a yearly Canadian content level of at least 60 per cent overall, measured over the course of the entire broadcast day, and at least 50 per cent between 6 p.m.
Evaluation of Canadian content in a television program is based on the following criteria: whether its producer and key creative personnel are Canadian; the amounts paid to Canadians for services provided to make the program; and amounts spent in Canada on lab processing.

 Self-Regulation of Internet Content: A Canadian Perspective
Controversial or offensive content is for the most part defined subjectively in the sense that, while it is not illegal under Canadian law, it is deemed to be controversial or offensive according to individual, community, or culturally based standards.
Offensive content includes such things as legal pornography; violence; alcohol and tobacco advertising aimed at minors; and other content that may be considered to be objectionable on social, religious, cultural, or other grounds.
For example, in the case that a complainant is informed that content which they believe to be illegal is in fact legal, the hotline has an opportunity to advise the complainant of ways by which he or she can filter such content.

 Science Fiction Writer Robert J. Sawyer: Is Canadian SF Different From American SF?
And this story didn't just sneak into the Canadian market (and, with blind judging, there's no way it was selected for whatever marketing value my name has); rather, it perfectly fit what the Canadian editors needed for their literary magazine.
Still, one does hear the claim that Canadian SF is so different from American SF that it can only be published in Canada; the claim is often followed by a disdainful sniff implying indeed that Canadian SF is in fact better than the American brand.
The "Canadian SF is different" excuse is really just another form of the sometimes-heard "all the really inventive work in the SF field appears in the semiprozines" excuse put forth by American writers who've managed penny-a-word sales but can't seem to crack any major market.
