Often invisible, mental illness is one of the most pervasive health issues in the country with far-reaching consequences for Canadians. Bell Media is focused on raising awareness of this important and often all-encompassing issue. 1 in 5 people will experience a form of mental illness at some point in their lives, and most will be reluctant to talk to a co-worker, friend, or family member about their struggle. Bell Media is helping to make those conversations easier by eliminating the stigma around mental illness.
Contributing to the enhancement of Canadian culture and a burgeoning media industry is Bell Media’s guiding motif. As one of the largest supporters of film, television, and music through development funding and an avenue to showcase home-grown talent, Bell Media continually supports partnerships and events that enhance our industry, providing much-needed opportunities for Canadian talent to break through.
Community is a cornerstone of Bell Media’s business. Our local properties highlight the rich cultural events within the communities we live and work in, while our national programming ties Canadian communities together.
Bell Media is proud to support a variety of initiatives across Canada and across its business. From local-specific events to national campaigns, Bell Media is committed to viewer outreach. We do accept sponsorship requests for in-kind donations and services.
