Radio


Francophones have access to a community radio network that has been built up over the years. These five radio stations are located in Kapuskasing, Cornwall, Hearst, Penetanguishene and Toronto, reaching a total audience of more than 150,000 Francophones. Three projects are currently underway.

Franco-Ontarians can also count on radio service from Radio-Canada, which has stations in Ottawa, Windsor, Sudbury and Toronto.

Two private radio stations round out the French-language radio services available.

Television


Francophones also have access to TFO, the French-language public education network in Ontario and the only French-language broadcaster outside Quebec.

In June 2006, the Ontario government announced its intention to grant full autonomy to TFO. The Office des télécommunications éducatives de langue française de l'Ontario (OTÉLFO) was created on April 1, 2007, a corporation with its own board of directors encompassing the TFO television station, which officially became an autonomous Franco-Ontarian organization independent of TVOntario, which also operates the Anglophone station TVO.

Radio-Canada has stations in Ottawa, Toronto, Windsor, and Sudbury.

Francophones also have access to numerous French-language television channels through their cable operator.
