With this chapter, the book moves to the Western Hemisphere. The chapter looks at media ownership and concentration in Canada. It analyzes the evolution of a dozen of the most significant media markets in Canada. The analysis is based on a body of data assembled for each sector from 1984 until 2011: wired and wireless telecom services, broadcast television, multichannel pay television, cable, satellite, and IPTV distributors, newspapers, magazines, music, radio, Internet access, and search engines and social network sites. It creates a systematic body of data covering the past two and a half decades. The main platform media firms are BCE, Rogers, Shaw, Telus, and Quebecor. These firms also participate in audiovisual media, in addition to the public CBC. In print media, major firms are Postmedia, Torstar, and Thompson.

Keywords:   Canadian media market, social network, wireless telecom, telecom-media-Internet industries, BCE, Rogers, Shaw, Telus, Torstar, Postmedia, CBC, Thomson
