Spark conversation. Spark courage.

About Us

We serve as the spark that ignites the sharing of a truly Canadian culture. Our stories. Our ideas. Our uniqueness.

We do it by championing the content produced by the diverse people of this land. First the spark glows – and then it grows.

We’re not just fostering Canadian voices for entertainment’s sake. We’re celebrating the history – and the future – of this great nation.

Vision
