Trinity Square Video
1. Call for Submissions to LEFT, RIGHT, CENTER

Deadline: October 15, 2010

Trinity Square Video announces the next TSV Commission trilogy, LEFT, RIGHT, CENTER, a project that asks artists to create 5- to 7-minute videos using audio as a primary source material for the examination of contemporary political issues.  Celebrating TSV’s 40-year history as a centre for the production and commissioning of art, we are looking for five successful proposals to the first portion of this trilogy: LEFT.

Videomakers chosen for LEFT must begin their projects from existing or previously self-created audio sources.  These sources must be described in the project proposal and can include: audio interviews, self-recorded sounds, archival/historical audio material, music or appropriated sounds. (Music videos are NOT eligible for TSV Commissions.)

For LEFT, we are seeking proposals for the creation of work that considers the idea of “left” from various positions: from the egalitarian leftist or the undecided left-leaning; from a place of possible difference on the left-side or in leftfield; or from those remainders that haunt us–what is leftover, what is left unsaid or what has been left hanging.

This is a commission for the production of video art.  TSV is seeking submissions that propose to explore pertinent issues related, but not limited, to representation, identity, geography and space, economics, justice, divisions of labour and power, science, history and philosophy.  These works can be impassioned, critical or humorously self-effacing.

Proposed artworks can employ video through a variety of strategies, including narrative and documentary form, formalist or materialist practices, animation or compositing, and for the first time in TSV’s commissioning history, through a limited number of selected video installations*.

Selected artists receive:

* $750 in production equipment rentals;
* 40 hours of editing time;
* TSV Final Cut Pro or After Effects workshop;
* Support from TSV’s technical and artistic Staff;
* TSV membership or renewal;
* $350 Honorarium;
* Public screening/exhibition (February 2011);
* Inclusion in the LEFT, RIGHT, CENTER catalogue (published at the completion of the trilogy)

While each project is created separately, the artists participate in group-critiques of works-in-progress, where they can receive peer-support and feedback.

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of artist-peers and the TSV Programming Committee who will make selections based on the proposed project’s exploration of the theme, LEFT, as well as its intended examination, experimentation and expansion of video as an art medium.

All Toronto-based emerging and established visual artists, video artists, media artists, sound artists and filmmakers are welcome to submit proposals to LEFT.  Proposals from those living outside Toronto and surrounding area must ensure that the artist will attend all LEFT related activities at their own expense.

*Up to 2 video installations will be presented as part of LEFT.  The majority of successful applications supported by this commission will be for the creation single-channel videos. Selected artists working in single-channel video or video installation will receive the same resources from TSV, as outlined above.

Proposals must include an application form available at www.trinitysquarevideo.com

2. TSV Annual Call for Submissions

Deadline: November 15, 2010

TSV is a not-for-profit artist-run centre for the production, education and dissemination of video by artists and community organizations. Since 1971, TSV has made access to the means of communication its priority, providing a diverse community of video practitioners media-arts related development through workshops, seminars and classes, as well as offering a space for the creation and exhibition of video art.  Through its public programming, TSV has advanced the understanding and appreciation of video produced by various community-based groups and numerous internationally recognized artists, such as Michael Balser, John Greyson, Vera Frenkel, Richard Fung, Nancy Nicol, and Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak.  Recently, TSV has presented works by Ursula Biemann, Harry Dodge, Alison Kobayashi, Alex Morrison, Steve Reinke and James Richards, Jayce Salloum, Mark Tribe, Ming Wong, Jin-me Yoon, among others.

TSV is seeking video art that expands understanding of the medium and explores the representations that are constructed through its technological processes.  We are eager to hear from artists and curators critically engaged with the social, philosophical and political implications of video in its various forms: video art, video installation, lens-based and non-lens-based digital animation, and video-based photography/works-on-paper.

Submission Requirements:

1. One DVD with a maximum of 10 minutes of previous and/or proposed work.*
2.  Written proposal (1-page)
3. Artist’s Statement (1-page)
4. Curriculum Vitae
5. Self-addressed, stamped envelope for return of support material.**

*DVDs can be supplemented with up to 10 digital slides on CD-ROM (Mac compatible, .jpg images only, no folders, all images must be listed with slide number, artist’s last name, title of work and year, eg. 01_smith_untitled_2010.jpg).

**Support material will not be returned without a SASE.

Submissions must be postmarked no later than November 15. If this date falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day.

Submissions will not be accepted electronically.

A floorplan of the TSV Gallery is available at www.trinitysquarevideo.com

We encourage proposals from emerging to established Canadian artists and curators.  The work of international artist will only be considered for group exhibitions with Canadian artists.

We firmly support the equitable remuneration of artists.  TSV pays all of it exhibiting artists in accordance with the CARFAC fees schedule.

Our exhibitions are presented for 4 to 5 weeks.  TSV also accepts proposals by curators for single-night screenings.

Questions? Call TSV Programming Director Jean‐Paul Kelly at 416‐593‐1332 or

The Toronto Sculpture Garden has been recognized in Canada as a leader in the commissioning of contemporary sculpture since it opened in 1981.

Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts | A Golden Age: Exhibition Curated by Moses Znaimer | SEP 10

In collaboration with Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts

Deadline Friday September 10, 2010

Oct 30 – Oct 31, 9am – 5pm | At the ZoomerShow 2010

Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place | 100 Princes Blvd.,
Toronto, Ontario, M6K 3C3 Canada.

The term Golden Age originated in Greek mythology. It refers to
the first in a sequence of Ages of Man. The Golden Age
denotes the period of primordial peace, harmony, stability, and
prosperity during which, it is said, humans lived among the gods,
mingling freely with them, and living to a very old age – all the
while keeping their youthful appearance and vitality.

According to media innovator Moses Znaimer, today’s new
“Zoomer” generation is staying current, fit, healthy and engaged
well past what used to be thought as the traditional age of
“retirement”. In Mr. Znaimer’s own words “most Zoomers are
active, contributing members of society. Just staying alive is not
our preference; living well till we die is”

How does the concept of A Golden Age fire your imagination as
a visual artist? Artists are encour- aged to explore this theme
widely through the artistic medium of their choice.

Artists selected for this exhibition will be paid Carfac fees, will be
eligible for a $2000 Best in Show Prize and a $1000 Peoples’
Choice Prize, and their work will be featured in Zoomer
Magazine. Out of town artists will receive accommodation if they
wish to be present at the ZoomerShow.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
An Art Exhibition Curated by Moses Znaimer In collaboration with
Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts

Submissions should include the following:

One image only of the work you wish to exhibit burned on a CD:
200dpi, maximum 1 MB and saved as a jpeg; if you send more
than one image, only the first image will be considered and no
online e-mail submissions accepted.
Details about the work including: Your Name, Title, Year,
Medium, Size & Value as well as a brief written statement about
the work (maximum 80 words) stating how it relates to the
exhibition parameters. Please use a 10pt. Helvetica font and
save as a Word file (.doc) on the same disk. Include a hard copy
with your submission as well.
A Curriculum Vitae and contact information which must include
name, address, phone number, and e-mail; include as Word file
(.doc) on CD as well as a hard copy on paper.
Non-refundable Entry Fee of $40 (CDN or US) cheque or money
order made out to Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts.
A self addressed, stamped envelope for return of materials.
Entry materials without a SASE will not be returned.

call for artworks
amberFestival invites applications for interactive installations around the theme “DATACITY”
deadline: 20th of August 2010
click to submit: http://submissions.amberplatform.org
This is an international call. The works selected from among the submissions will be exhibited between 5th and 14th of November in İstanbul in the frame of amber’10 Art and Technology Festival. The selected artworks by artists from Turkey will be supported for further development if this is deemed necessary and possible.
amberFestival especially seeks interactive installations designed for outdoor exhibition.
Datacity
For the first time in history the World’s urban population has outnumbered its rural counterpart. Cities have become the predominant habitat of humanity. The requirements of rapidly growing cities, coupled with the contemporary technological possibilities bring about new urban reality that is data. amber’10 takes up the relationship between city and data as its festival theme.
It is no accident that the rise of statistics as a science coincided with the rise of the modern city as a social form during the industrial revolution. When statistical methods of data production and measurement coupled with reproductive techniques such as photography and printing, the modern city entered into imaginary circulation simultaneously with its double, its image. From its beginnings, the modern city emerged both as a reality and a representation that were interrelated in such a manner that it became hard to tell one from the other.
In this historical process, contemporaneous with the Enlightenment and Industrial capitalism, the ability to understand the city became conditional on processing and thinking through the data it produced. Data has become a crucial factor in urban social relations and politics.
The capacity to produce and process all kinds of data has increased tremendously with the rise of new technologies in the last three decades. Capitalist parliamentary democracy, as it exists today, demands transparency, efficiency and absolute security as the conditions of its mechanism and has at its service the wide possibilities offered by new technologies to meet these demands. This coupling brought about the strategic importance of data in today’s World. We know and define the city through the images made up of its data. The collection, storage and processing of the vast amount of data has become an everyday practice that is both visible and invisible, threatening to some and absolutely beneficial to others in a field ranging from law to ethics, human rights to health.
With the theme title Datacity, amber’10 proposes to define the modern city as a data cluster in addition to however else the city form may be defined today. We call on artists to interpret the life forms, production and consumption patterns and politics of the Datacity from the vantage point of arts and technology.

Appel à projet « J ’exp(l)ose ! »
Du 1er novembre 2010 au 31 janvier 2011, « J ’exp(l)ose ! » invite 10 créateurs / créatifs issus de
toutes disciplines à prendre possession et à détourner 10 lieux insolites situés dans l’espace
public du quartier d’Empalot à Toulouse.

Surprenantes, amusantes, ludiques, poétiques, politiques, sociales, suggestives, les exp(l)ositions
ouvriront un dialogue qui fera écho aux problématiques de la population du quartier :
qu’elles soient sociales, économiques, culturelles, linguistiques, etc…

Les habitants des quartiers ont un quotidien qui ne facilite pas, voire ne permet pas l’accès
à l’art. L’art maintient la vitalité des sociétés démocratiques, la démocratie reposant sur le
respect et la prise en considération des différences qui existent entre ses membres.
Or, la société que nous partageons place le profit avant l’homme. Face à cela, et par le biais
de l’art, l’association vise à replacer l’homme au centre des préoccupations, à recréer du lien
social et à encourager la construction d’un monde idéologiquement différent, humainement
plus enrichissant. (voir livre « Et pour toi c’est quoi l’art ? »)

6500 habitants pour environ une centaine de nationalités, vivent sur ce territoire : des
thèmes tels que l’habitat, l’environnement, la société de consommation, le travail mais aussi
l’immigration, les questions de nationalité, les discriminations, vus avec humour, dérision,
poésie seront les bienvenus.
Ces 10 oeuvres offriront un parcours poétique plein de sens sur un territoire dont la réalité est
plutôt triste et peu harmonieuse.

L’association « Entrez sans frapper » est installée sur le quartier d’Empalot depuis 10 ans ; elle y
organise des résidences d’artistes aux démarches originales et singulières : des grandes photos
des habitants sur les murs au faux catalogue de La Redoute, « La Déroute », à la dernière édition
« Et pour toi c’est quoi l’art ? » qui a impliqué plus de 1609 personnes au niveau international.
Par ses actions, l’association explore de nouvelles pistes en faveur de la démocratie culturelle,
souhaite faciliter l’accès à l’expression artistique et la diffusion de paroles différentes,
encourage l’initiative citoyenne ainsi que la pluralité artistique et culturelle.
La présélection des œuvres sera faite par l’association, le jury final sera composé d’habitants
du quartier. « J ’exp(l)ose ! » sera aussi l’occasion pour 10 habitants du quartier de parrainer et
d’aider les 10 artistes sélectionnés à installer leurs œuvres.

ARTPARK contemporary art 
Light Art Biennale Lichtkunst 2010
Linz/Austria – 2-11 September 2010

Call for entry: private light in public spaces
www.lightart-biennale.com/light-art-biennial/ 
The Biennial of light art Austria 2010 is an exhibition of contemporary art dealing with light and is inaugurated in 2010.
General information
The slogan of the „ Biennale für Lichtkunst Austria 2010“ is „private light in public spaces“ and takes place in Austria within the project “LALA”. LALA means Linz (Austria) and Langenzersdorf (Austria), where the two initiators have their ateliers. Linz was the cultural capital of Austria in 2009, and the city is established in the cultural landscape by the Museum Lentos, the Ars Electronca Center and the Brucknerhaus. Langenezersdorf , a township close to Vienna, has two museums for famous Austrian sculptors, the Hanak-Museum and the Charoux-Museum. On April 13th 2010 the National Biennale of light art starts by presenting artwork in public spaces.
Artists from all over the world are invited to show their light projects in streets, squares and public buildings, trying to empathise with the places and the people who frequent them or simply work there. Already completed artwork is shown as well as artwork especially created for the Biennale. The keywords are light-art, public and private, which build the
triangle of eagerness.
The organisation team of the „Biennale für Lichtkunst Austria 2010“ is led by Martina Schettina from Langenzersdorf and Manfred Kielnhofer from Linz.
Exhibition spaces
The public exhibition spaces are selected by the artists themselves. There is no border and no limit, so every artist has the greatest possible freedom of action. The reaction of the public will be different, because they are rapidly transformed into a captive audience. The public may come with no prior art experience, alternatively with much education.
Concept
This first Biennial for Light Art in Austria wants to generate a cut surface between society and art. The spontaneous conjunction with art in public spaces leans on the art concept of Joseph Beuys from 1965 “How to define the paintings to the dead rabbit” in Düsseldorf.

NEW LIFE RESIDENCY is the world’s first non-visual residency program for artists. The residency is organized by Wooloo as a work of Manifesta 8, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, and will take place this fall in the Region of Murcia, Spain.
For one week each, five artists will be selected to live and work in a dark, visually distorted exhibition space. To support them in their life and work for the week, the artist will collaborate with a local Murcian assistant who is blind.
In cooperation with her/his assistant, the artist will use the one-week residency to create a guided tour of the non-visual space and experience in which s/he is living. The blind assistant will be the guide of this tour in darkness and the tour will be open to the biennial audience.
Additional to the guided tour, the five selected concept proposals will furthermore be exhibited in one of the main museum locations of Manifesta 8 and will be on view throughout the biennial from September 30th, 2010 (preview) to January 9th, 2011.
The five residency periods are:
October 4th to October 9th, 2010
October 11th to October 16th, 2010
October 18th to October 23rd, 2010
October 25th to October 30th, 2010
November 1st to November 6th, 2010
Artists are invited to apply for participation in the residency at www.wooloo.org/residency
The deadline for work proposals is AUGUST 15th, 2010.

M.A.P. Mobile Artistic Platform – Call for Applications (deadline 20th August 2010)

www.reloadingimages.org
CALL FOR APPLICATION
M.A.P. – mobile artistic platform- is a trans-disciplinary travelling platform that will move
across different locations in South India between 18th October and 15th November,
culminating with an open studio presentation at 1Shanti Road Gallery in Bangalore. The
travelling project is open to 6 participants from different artistic/creative backgrounds.
At the core of the project is a commitment to foster meaningful interactions and vital
collaborations between Asian, Indian and International artists through participatory and
new media tools.
The project proposes two general levels of inquiry. On the one hand, the four locations
selected will frame the specificity of our investigations with the direct exchange and
interaction with the local communities and joint partners. On the other hand, the project
aims at investigating the act of travelling in relation to creative exchange and learning
processes. At the junction between travel and artistic production what is important for
us to explore are the ways through which self-organization and creative exchange could
be initiated and experienced collectively. The experimental format of this project will try
to address a series of issues concerning sustainable tourism, cross-cultural exchange
and hospitality. A series of generic questions will lead the travelling residency and
the creative collaborations between the artists and the people, places and practices
encountered:
•
In which ways the act of travelling can be understood as a learning process, as
well as becoming a space for creative collaborations?
•
How can we approach mobility in terms of artistic process?
•
What forms of exchange can activate a critical reflection on the relationship
between different set of polarizations (perception/projection, observer/observed,
inclusion/exclusion, artist/tourist)?
PROGRAM
The project is scheduled to start on the 18th October 2010. The first week will be spent
on a location near Bangalore for an initial session of workshops and to plan the journey
with the participants. After this initial session, the group (the invited participants together
with members of Reloading Images, Maraa Collective and City Spinning) will start
the journey (17/18 days) visiting some specific locations in the South Indian regions
of Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. A joint partner active in each location will
interact and cooperate with the group. More information about partners and places will
be announced soon.
The initial series of workshops (delivered by Reloading Images, Maraa Media Collective
and other invited guests) has also the function of activating and initiating conversations
and research directions in preparation for the journey. The methodologies explored are
based on different artistic practices (film, photography, visual art, critical theory, writing,
community based practices, theatre and performance making) with particular attention to
the creation of the aural archive.
At the end of the journey, the group will have an open studio presentation at 1shantiroad
studio gallery (http://www.1shanthiroad.com/) on the 13th and 14th of November. The
final presentation will exhibit the work-in-progress developed during the journey. It will
not be an exhibition of finished individual projects, but the focus of this final event is
to share the experiences and exchanges that have emerged during the mobile artistic
platform.
A web-based radio station/podcast will act as the main creative repository tool to be
developed by all participants.
It will encourage participants to interact and engage
not just with the communities at each site but also to promote internal discussions
and debates with each other. After the completion of the project, an interactive
website will be created to offer an alternative and creative presentation, visualizing
the ‘learning route’ followed during the residency, reflecting on historical layers and
present connotations, and acting as an archive of all the visual/textual/aural material and
collaborative projects produced during the platform.
WHO CAN APPLY?
We are looking for independent and open-minded artists and cultural practitioners from
various disciplines, with interest in exploring new ways of interaction and collaboration,
and, as a web-radio project will be developed during the platform, an interest in aural
documentation is very much appreciated. The project focuses on collaboration and
direct learning. Therefore we are not interested in object-based production but rather on
the work-in-progress potentiality of opening up spaces for dialogue and reflection. The
official working language is English and participants should speak it fluently.
Due to the circumstances of the project, the candidates should be self-aware and
experienced in travelling in basic conditions. Self-management, adaptability and
teamwork are crucial.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
If selected, each participant will have to sign a form, which in essence states that the
individual will be responsible for his/her own safety, life and health. The organizers
will not be held liable in any event. The entire project will be legally framed under the
Bangalore High Court jurisdiction. The selection process is at the sole discretion and
decision of Reloading Images, Maraa and City Spinning. The decisions will be final and
non-negotiable.
Paid by the organization: The organization will pay for accommodation and travelling
costs (train tickets, transportations) within M.A.P from the 18th of October until the 15th
of November, as well as the production and organization of the final open studio, web-
radio and website. Where provided, food served will be Indian, and accommodation will
be fairly basic.
Paid by the participant: The selected participants will have to cover the costs to and from
Bangalore, visa and health insurance. Participants are encouraged to carry sleeping
bag, medicines, mosquito repellent etc.

Appel à candidatures en Pays Solesmois
APPEL à CANDIDATURES en vue d’une résidence – mission
Proposée aux artistes, de tous les domaines d’expression dont la recherche et la production, inscrites dans le champ de la création contemporaine, sont traversées par la question du territoire (histoire, identité…) et du paysage (géographique, humain, urbanistique…).
Une résidence-mission relevant du programme A.R.T. est menée à des fins d’ action culturelle et territoriale. Elle est organisée en faveur d’un certain nombre d’habitants d’un territoire relativement large. Ici, il s’agit de la jeunesse et au delà, des habitants de la communauté de communes du Pays Solesmois, dans le département du Nord.

La résidence-mission repose sur une pleine disponibilité de l’artiste, durant quatre mois, ainsi que sur une diffusion à travers le territoire concerné d’une part représentative de son oeuvre déjà accomplie et disponible. Cette diffusion, en lieux dédiés et non dédiés, s’envisageant dès l’ amont de la période de résidence à proprement parler et se poursuivant tout au long de sa durée

La résidence-mission ne se confond nullement avec une résidence de création puisqu’il n’y a ni enjeu de production ni commande d’oeuvre. Pour l’artiste-résident(e) il s’agit, plus particulièrement, de s’engager dans une démarche d’action culturelle donnant à voir et à comprendre la recherche artistique qui l’anime ainsi que les processus de création qu’il met en oeuvre (réflexion, expérimentation, réalisation).

Cette mise en évidence s’appuie sur des formes d’intervention ou d’actions très variées se différenciant, toutefois, des traditionnels ateliers de pratique artistique régis par un tout autre type de cahier des charges et aux finalités différentes.

Ceci se traduit, concrètement,

– par une première phase prenant essentiellement place en début de résidence et s’articulant autour de multiples rencontres avec les divers professionnels en lien avec la jeunesse et avec des groupes d’habitants du territoire (éducateurs, animateurs, personnels soignant, travailleurs sociaux, enseignants, responsables associatifs, professionnels de la culture, etc ). Ces professionnels sont tous invités à appréhender la recherche et la production artistique de l’artiste-résident(e). Ces rencontres peuvent revêtir des formes extrêmement variées afin d’éviter tout caractère répétitif. Les acteurs rencontrés sont également sollicités, en ces instances ou à leur issue, pour évoquer avec l’artiste-résident la manière, sensible et inventive, dont ils aimeraient, le cas échéant, faire percevoir sa présence ainsi que celle de son oeuvre déjà accomplie aux publics qu’ils côtoient ou dont ils ont la responsabilité

– par une seconde phase au cours de laquelle se construisent entre l’ artiste-résident(e) et les divers professionnels déjà cités toutes sortes d’actions à mener en direction de leurs publics de référence. Ces actions que l’on appelle ici gestes artistiques sont conçues le plus souvent possible de manière à concerner un nombre significatif de personnes. Ces gestes artistiques sont également conçus en tenant particulièrement compte des contextes d’exercice des différents professionnels partenaires, de leurs différents degrés d’implication possibles ainsi que de ceux des habitants avec lesquels il sont en lien.

Ces actions se menant dans les différents temps des jeunes, ont pour objectif de permettre à un grand nombre d’ enfants, d’adolescents et de jeunes et au delà, des habitants du territoire, d’acquérir une expérience originale et sensible de l’œuvre. Ces actions peuvent avoir lieu aussi bien au sein des associations, des centres sociaux, des centres de loisirs, des structures culturelles, des établissements scolaires que dans l’espace public ou tout autre site qui paraîtra approprié à l’artiste-résident(e) et à ses partenaires locaux.

Période et durée de la résidence
La période de résidence est prévue du 15 novembre 2010 au 31 mars 2011. Avec interruption du 20 décembre 2010 au 2 janvier 2011, soit pendant la période de fin d’année.

Il s’agit donc d’une résidence de quatre mois à raison de cinq à six jours de présence par semaine.
Procédure à suivre pour la candidature
peut donc faire acte de candidature tout (e) artiste professionnel(le ), français(e) ou étranger(e).

· L’artiste candidat(e) doit avoir à son actif une production conséquente, et être en mesure de s’impliquer pleinement dans ce type particulier d’action que représente la résidence-mission.

· L’artiste candidat(e) doit maîtriser l’usage oral de la langue française.

· L’artiste candidat(e) doit détenir le permis de conduire et disposer d’un véhicule personnel.

Les éléments à fournir sont:

· une lettre de motivation,

· un curriculum vitae,

· un dossier artistique présentant notamment un ensemble de productions représentatives de la démarche de l’artiste-candidat(e)

· une liste des œuvres/productions disponibles à des fins de diffusion pendant, avant ou après le temps de résidence.

Le CRTC lance son rapport de surveillance sur les communications au Canada

Le CRTC annonce notamment que 52% des Canadiens anglophones et 44% des Candiens francophones ont regardé des émissions de télévision sur le web en 2009. Les revenus des services canadiens de communication ont encore augmenté pendant la denrière année pour atteindre 55,4 milliards de dollars. Les services de télécommunications ont quant à eux bénéficié d’une augmentation de revenus pour un total de 41 milliards de dollars.

téléchargez le rapport:

http://www.crtc.gc.ca/fra/publications/reports/PolicyMonitoring/2010/cmr2010.pdf

Sommaire
L’influence des services sur large bande et autres services apparentés sur les revenus du secteur des communications est toujours considérable. Le présent rapport offre une image plus étoffée de la disponibilité de la large bande et des abonnements que ceux des années précédentes. Environ 95 % des ménages canadiens ont accès à des services sur large bande qui utilisent des installations terrestres. Les installations satellitaires étendent cet accès à presque tous les Canadiens et ne sont limitées que par des contraintes de capacité. À l’échelle provinciale, le service Internet terrestre sur large bande est offert à tous les ménages de trois provinces : le Nouveau-Brunswick, la Nouvelle-Écosse et l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard. Ailleurs au Canada, il est offert à au moins 92 % des foyers sauf à Terre-Neuve, où il ne rejoint que 78 % des ménages. Environ 96 % des Canadiens ont aussi accès à des services mobiles sur large bande par le biais d’appareils portables.

Croissance des revenus des services de communications
Les revenus des services canadiens de communication ont progressé de 2,1 % pour s’établir à 55,4 milliards de dollars, comparativement à 54,3 milliards de dollars en 2008. Cette croissance a été stimulée par l’augmentation de 3,0 % des revenus de radiodiffusion et de 1,8 % des revenus des télécommunications.

Radiodiffusion
Les revenus de radiodiffusion sont passés de 14,0 milliards de dollars en 2008 à 14,4 milliards de dollars en 2009. Cette croissance est attribuable à l’augmentation de 7,4 % des revenus des entreprises de distribution de radiodiffusion (EDR) qui sont passé de 6,9 à 7,5 milliards de dollars, et à celle de 6 % des services spécialisés et des services payants, de TVC et de VSD. Ces hausses ont été partiellement compensées par des chutes de 7,4 % et de 5,2 % des revenus de la télévision traditionnelle (y compris la SRC) et des revenus publicitaires de la radio respectivement.

Télécommunications
Les revenus des services de télécommunications ont progressé de 1,8 % pour s’établir à 41 milliards de dollars, comparativement à 40,3 milliards de dollars en 2008. Cette augmentation est attribuable d’une part aux nouveaux services (ou services non traditionnels) de transmission de données, d’autre part aux services sans fil et Internet sur large bande. Les revenus des services non traditionnels ont augmenté de 12,2 %, passant de 1,4 milliard de dollars à 1,5 milliard de dollars. Les revenus des services Internet sont passés de 6,2 milliards de dollars à 6,6 milliards de dollars, soit une croissance de 6,3 %. Les revenus du secteur du sans-fil ont progressé de 16,0 à 16,9 milliards de dollars – une hausse de 5,3 %. Ces hausses ont été partiellement compensées par le déclin de 7,1 % des revenus des appels interurbains (4,2 à 3,9 milliards de dollars), de 7,3 % des revenus des services traditionnels de transmission de données et de liaison spécialisée (3 à 2,8 milliards de dollars) et de 1,9 % des revenus des services traditionnels et d’accès (9,6 à 9,4 milliards de dollars).

L’industrie des télécommunications
En 2009, environ 34 % de la clientèle résidentielle était abonnée à des services groupés qui comprenaient la téléphonie locale et au moins un des services suivants : accès internet, vidéo et services mobiles. Environ 92 % des revenus issus des télécommunications provenaient des FST actifs dans tous les secteurs des télécommunications : téléphone local, interurbain, Internet, sans-fil, transmission de données et ligne directe. Les revenus des entreprises par câble provenaient à 67 % des services de télécommunications. De la même façon, les revenus des services de radiodiffusion ont représenté environ 6 % des revenus des compagnies de téléphone titulaires.
Au Canada, la convergence de l’industrie des communications modifie le paysage concurrentiel à mesure que les entreprises pénètrent dans leurs marchés non traditionnels réciproques (voir le graphique 3.1.8).
Concurrence La part des revenus totaux de télécommunications filaires affichée par les autres FST a continué à croître pour atteindre 37 % en 2009. La part de marché des autres FST comprend les activités que les compagnies de téléphone titulaires exercent hors de leurs territoires traditionnels (8 %), les activités des autres FST dotés d’installations, comme les entreprises de câblodistribution et les entreprises hydroélectriques, qui fournissent des services de télécommunication (23 %) et les activités des revendeurs (6 %).

Les grandes entreprises de câblodistribution ont joué un rôle capital dans la fourniture du service Internet à haut débit puisqu’elles affichent une proportion d’environ 56 % d’abonnés de résidence à Internet haute vitesse en 2009. En 2005, elles ont commencé à offrir des services téléphoniques locaux, généralement par gestion de réseau par IP. Toutefois, elles fournissaient près de 27 % des lignes téléphoniques résidentielles, s’imposant ainsi comme d’importantes concurrentes des compagnies de téléphone titulaires des marchés de résidence.

Les concurrents des compagnies de téléphone titulaires, y compris les compagnies de téléphone titulaires qui exercent leurs activités hors de leurs territoires traditionnels, ont maintenu leur part des revenus de télécommunications. Le nombre de lignes locales des concurrents, surtout des EDR par câble, a connu une forte croissance, augmentant de 12,5 %. Dans le marché des services d’affaires, la proportion de lignes offertes par la concurrence a augmenté de 4,8 %.

Radiodiffusion
Radio
En 2009, le Canada comptait 1 221 services radiophoniques et sonores, dont 41 numériques. De ce total, 75 % ciblaient la population canadienne anglophone, 22 %, la population canadienne francophone, 3 %, la population canadienne de langue tierce.

À l’échelle nationale, l’écoute hebdomadaire moyenne par habitant a diminué de 3,2 %, passant de 18,3 heures en 2008 à 17,7 heures en 2009. L’écoute hebdomadaire moyenne par auditeur a baissé de 2,5 %, passant de 20,0 à 19,5 heures.

Télévision
L’écoute globale des émissions canadiennes diffusées par les services canadiens anglophones a diminué de 2 % par rapport à 2008, s’établissant à 74 %, tandis que celle des émissions canadiennes diffusées par les services francophones est restée relativement stable à 99 %. Les émissions dramatiques et comiques demeurent les genres les plus populaires, mais leur contenu est principalement non canadien. En 2009, les émissions non canadiennes ont représenté 79 % et 68 % de l’écoute des émissions dramatiques et comiques de langue anglaise et de langue française respectivement.

EDR
En 2009, environ 11,3 millions ou 90 % des ménages canadiens étaient abonnés à une EDR pour son service de télévision, soit une hausse de 2,2 % par rapport à 2008. Parmi eux, 25 % étaient abonnés soit à une EDR par SRD, soit à une EDR par SDM. Les quatre EDR par câble les plus importantes et les deux services par SRD ont accaparé 89 % de toute la clientèle des EDR en 2009.
Les revenus mensuels de programmation des EDR par abonné1 ont augmenté de 2,78 $, ou 5 %, pour s’établir à 56,14 $ en 2009.

Radiodiffusion par les nouveaux médias
Un nombre croissant de Canadiens anglophones et francophones regarde des émissions vidéo sur le web (52 % et 44 % respectivement en 2009). De plus, davantage de Canadiens regardent la télévision en ligne. L’écoute hebdomadaire des émissions de télévision en ligne a été de 2,2 heures pour les anglophones et de 1,3 heure pour les francophones.

La population anglophone qui écoute la radio en continu sur le web a tendance à moins le faire que les francophones qui le font. Les anglophones passent 4,1 heures par semaine à écouter la radio AM ou FM en continu, comparativement à 4,6 heures pour les francophones.
