Kenney, G. I.
Possible solutions to communication problems in Canada's North are presented in this report. A centralized source of information is proposed, along with suggestions for aid from the government and universities. Recommendations for improving communication are also listed: the modification of Canada's Anik satellite program; the involvement of regional popular groups to provide for self-expression on the part of the northern people (American Indians, Eskimos, and whites); formation of a centralized Northern Communications Information Center; government recognition of various communication groups; provision of broadcast radio facilities and improvement of telephone service; establishment of northern-oriented radio and TV program production centers; assumption of coordination responsibilities by the Government of Canada Department of Communications; and development of guidelines by the Canadian Radio and Television Commission. Appendices provide information on organizations doing communications work in northern Canada and also a proposal for a communications unit. A 67-item bibliography is included. Part I of the report is RC006016. (PS)
