The Trudeau government’s plan to revitalize cultural industries – will not  include a tax on Netflix.

But observers say we can expect Heritage Minister Melanie Joly to highlight this week – that she expects more from companies like Netflix, Facebook and Google – when it comes to promoting and supporting Canadian content.

A major theme of Joly’s speech on Thursday is the so-called “creative economy” – and she’s expected to lay out three pillars – to revamp the approach the government takes to culture.

One will be a focus on helping Canadians create content – and a second aspect is helping to market and sell it.

Public broadcasting, namely the CBC,  is the third part of the discussion.
