TLN Media Group and Canadian Civil Liberties Association Unite to Engage Multicultural Communities
New PSA Kicks Off 2020 Awareness Campaign
TLN Media Group (TMG) and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) have announced a working relationship to ensure multicultural Canadians receive information and education about their rights and freedoms.
As a first step in their collaboration, CCLA and TLN Media Group have produced a public service announcement which will be broadcast and circulated on TLN Media Group platforms and with participating partners.
The Association is a non-profit, non-partisan, independent organization recognized by Canadian courts as a credible, renowned authority on civil liberties. The organization’s mandate includes educating Canadians on their rights.
As Canada’s most influential multicultural media company, TMG will raise awareness and expand support for the CCLA. According to the most recent census data, one in five Canadians speak an immigrant language at home.*
“We are seasoned storytellers and connectors for Canada’s multicultural communities,” said Aldo Di Felice, President of TLN Media Group. “This alliance uses the reach and influence of our platforms and activities to educate and inform millions of Canadians in various languages about Canada’s civil liberties, human rights, and democratic freedoms that are CCLA’s focus.”
“Rights and freedoms — like privacy, equality, free speech, freedom of religion, presumption of innocence, indigenous rights and due process — is our expertise,” added Michael Bryant, Executive Director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. “We fight to entrench those rights for all Canadians, regardless of language or ethnicity. However, Canada’s geographic and multicultural diversity limits our reach, just as our ability to teach and advocate in the languages of all Canadians is limited to our teachers’ language capacity. This partnership with TLN Media Group will help CCLA to expand our reach, impact and ability to deliver our curriculum, advocacy and campaigns to as many languages as possible. We look forward to working with one of Canada’s most experienced and respected ethnic broadcasting companies.”
