From Kate Taylor of the Toronto Star:
- Canadian children’s programs a hit, both here and abroad
“Children’s television in general, and animation in particular, is a real Canadian forte. Treehouse and YTV, the specialty channels owned by Nelvana’s parent company, Corus, pack their schedules with Canadian cartoons to meet their respective 70- and 60-per-cent Canadian content requirements. In 2009, eight of the 10 most watched shows for English-speaking 2- to 6-six-year-olds were either Canadian or Canadian co-productions, all of them aired in heavy rotation on Treehouse, while for the 6 to 12s, three of the top 10 were Canadian.” Read more.
