Company Profile

Since 1970, TVOntario has been producing, broadcasting, and distributing high quality educational programming. As the province's public educational broadcaster it operates two distinct networks, the English language TVO and the French language TFO (formerly la Chaine which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 1997). TVOntario receives 83% of its budget from the provincial government and generates the other 17% program sales, public membership, corporate underwriting and merchandise sales. It is committed to increasing self-generated revenues to a 50-50% ratio over the next few years. TVOntario produces, co-produces, acquires and broadcasts award winning children's and curriculum programming, informative credit and non-credit courses and provocative arts, science and public affairs programming. 70% of each network's schedule is dedicated to children's and educational television. To complement its on-air educational programming, TFO's very dynamic team of educators crisscrosses the province to teach French language teachers in the classroom use of its school programs. TFO is Canada's only French language television network producing and broadcasting outside Quebec. Since 1993 TVOntario has been involved in New Media, at first with a community-based bulletin board service and more recently with a presence on the World Wide Web as well as the development of curriculum based New Media products.
