A creative hub for Canadian-French language media and digital production, Radio-Canada will move into its new broadcast centre in 2020. The new Maison de Radio-Canada (MRC) has been designed to offer bright, modern and versatile spaces befitting a fully digital, multiplatform, creative public broadcaster, while meeting the strictest environmental and sustainable development standards. The MRC will be a showcase for public broadcasting.
According to Michel Bissonnette, Executive Vice-President of Radio-Canada, "The new Maison de Radio-Canada will provide our employees – and creators of all disciplines – with an inspiring workplace where their talent can thrive and flourish.”
The 80-year-old public broadcaster has not waited to have a new building to drive innovation from within and to position itself as a key open innovation actor on the Canadian scene. The digital R&D Lab launched 5 years ago, the Idea Accelerator, the yearly Hackathon and RAD, a newly created service aimed at a younger and more digital generation, are just a few examples of the many initiatives that have put Radio-Canada at the forefront of digital transformation.
Participants in the visit will have a unique opportunity to better understand how the Canadian broadcaster works.
The themed visit combines plenary sessions with separate NBI and IOI track sessions.
