    source of news entertainment and education The world and its technology have evolved since we first joined the airwaves and the public broadcaster has worked to evolve with it through the years Over the past few years however broadcasting and media consumption patterns have been changing at an unprecedented pace Although live television is still the most popular viewing format Canadians are also accessing content on new platforms 90 of them have a home Internet connection 85 watch online video and 68 listen to streaming audio Nearly half of Canadians own a tablet and 66 have a smartphone Online TV viewing is now commonplace for 46 of the country s audiences while smart TVs and Netflix style services are gaining ground Both the CBC Radio Canada Board of Directors and management team agreed that maintaining the status quo was not an option Our new strategy A space for us all is based upon a realistic yet imaginative assessment of our future and will strive to continue to earn the passionate audiences that Canada s national public broadcaster has enjoyed for decades We know that the face of broadcasting is changing and our role is to lead that change enabling Canadians to access the content they want when and how they want it At the same time we will continue to be a platform that develops and promotes Canadian talent and original productions ensuring that they are accessed here and where possible around the world Our content and services strategy mirrors the changing media habits of Canadians and will be made possible by shrinking our infrastructure footprint transforming our people and culture and increasing our financial sustainability The major overriding objective for the President and CEO and the Senior Management Team in the next five years may be described by the
