CCSA’s Pillars of Service
CCSA leverages the collective buying power of Canada's independent communications companies to deliver cost savings, advocates on its members’ behalf and provides opportunities for information sharing.
Cost Savings: CCSA negotiates contracts and administers wholesale payments on behalf of our members for more than 400 Canadian and non-Canadian (including US) video programming services. Members submit monthly reports and pay for their programming services through our proprietary and cost-effective Single Point Billing system.
Advocacy: Working with key decision-makers, CCSA promotes the broadcasting/video distribution interests of independent communications providers as a vital part of Canada’s communications system. We present a strong, unified voice to the regulator/government to ensure the views of our members are part of the conversation. We also campaign to protect members from unproductive policies and costs that could have unintended consequences.
Information Sharing: CCSA creates forums and opportunities for members to network and share information - both in person and virtually. We provide critical information to members on developments in the industry and in the world of regulatory/government and gather input from members about their business/issues/vision so we can best serve their broadcasting/video distribution needs.
