Board Chair's Message

With vaccination light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, I hope you and your loved ones have got your shots or soon will.

As TVO entered its second-half century this year, we responded to new calls in new ways.

Our digital education materials transitioned and expanded to help parents, students and educators affected by COVID closures.

Our current affairs content kept audiences informed about the pandemic’s impacts and policy-makers’ responses.

And our documentaries and co-productions provided employment opportunities for a number of independent creative teams and streamed welcome diversions for viewers.

None of this would be possible without the contributions of TVO employees and volunteers, our board and regional advisors, our sponsors, government funders, and the tens of thousands of individual donors who share TVO’s vision of a world made better through the power of learning.

TVO’s vital role in these challenging and unprecedented times was acknowledged by the Ontario government, when they passed legislation to expand our mandate. That, coupled with the arrival of new CEO Jeffrey Orridge and the work we're doing to chart a new strategic path forward, will serve the organization and all Ontarians well.

We are excited about TVO’s future. Thank you for being part of it.
