TV has been around in Canada since 1952 when the first stations were broadcast in Toronto and Montreal. To ensure there is enough Canadian content, the government requires that 50% of daily content is Canadian. This means that it is written, presented, produced, and contributed to at least partly by Canadians. TV service providers in Canada often aim their content to a broad North American audience.
