CLASS PROJECT: In the fall semester, CMAC facilitated a class project with 17 undergraduate McGill students from COMS 355: Media Governance. The students engaged the IndigenousRadio.ca open access resources and conference archive to draft a “Policy Proposal” that includes Terms of Reference and an Indigenous Radio Policy. For many students it was the first time they participated in drafting policy documents or researching Indigenous radio. CMAC Final Project (2017). “Policy Proposal” (download PDF).
