“I am so impressed with what your site has to offer in the way of media awareness, and use it as a daily reference point for many of our students.”
“We are very impressed with your program. We appreciate the fact that it is particularly Canadian and the availability of everything in French makes a huge difference.”
“MediaSmarts is the platinum-standard resource in my media courses and is oft-cited in the other literacy courses I teach."
– Professor, Faculty of Education

Funding received through the Benefactor category is approved by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), as part of the "Tangible Benefits" commitments made during broadcasting transactions. We appreciate the generous contributions of our benefactors and the CRTC’s support in allowing these financial benefits to be realized.
Signature Program Sponsorship
MediaSmarts sponsors can choose to direct funding towards a specific program or project. These signature programs, which depend on these targeted funds, are branded with the sponsor’s name.
Examples of “Signature Program” sponsorships:
- Young Canadians in a Wired World research (YCWW): The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) provided funding for Phase III of this ongoing research project which examines Canadian children and teen’s Internet use.
- Web Awareness Workshops Series for Ontario libraries: Google funded a MediaSmarts and Ontario Library Association partnership which makes our licensed Web Awareness Workshops Series available free in public libraries across Ontario.
