Canadian Rating Systems (Canadian English ratings
and Canadian French ratings)
The TV rating systems in Canada are based on the
Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications
Commission (CRTC) policy on violence in television
programming.
While violence is the most important content element to
be rated, the structure developed takes into consideration
other program content like language, nudity, sexuality and
mature themes.
When setting the V-CHIP on the Canadian system you can
choose either the Canadian English ratings or the Canadian
French ratings.
