Réseau de l'information (RDI) is a Canadian French language cable television news channel operated by CBC/Radio-Canada. RDI began broadcasting on January 1, 1995 and is considered the French-language equivalent of CBC Newsworld, also owned by the CBC.


RDI has the resources of information from the Radio-Canada/Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) group:

* 400 journalists
* ten newsrooms in the Information centre in Montreal
* 30 bureaus across Canada, and 7 foreign bureaus


RDI is distributed on basic cable and satellite television to 9.8 million homes, including 2 million in Quebec and seen each week by half-million English viewers.

Enroute Journal

RDI provides news, business, weather and sports information on Air Canada's inflight entertainment.


RDI broadcasts full local, national and international newscasts at the top of each hour and headlines every half hour from the newsroom of La Maison de Radio-Canada in Montreal and Quebec City. "Le Téléjournal Midi" is broadcast each weekday at 12pm and the main evening news bulletin "Le Téléjournal/Le Point" every evening live at 9:00 p.m. (eastern). These bulletins are also seen on the main French-language television network, Télévision de Radio-Canada. The channel covers big events live and also broadcasts regional news in the form of "Le Téléjournal Montréal" and "Le Téléjournal Atlantique".

The channel also broadcasts factual programs in the form of food program "L'épicerie", current affairs in "Les Grand Reportages" (The Big Reports), science in "Decouverte" (Discovery) and "Tout le Monde en Parlait" - a look back at past culture seen through the eyes of current events. During the weekend there is a greater amount of these programs, much in the same format as its English-language counterpart, CBC Newsworld.

RDI also carries "Le Journal Télévisé de 20 heures" from France 2, rebroadcasting it the following weekday at 4:30 p.m. (Eastern).

The current Governor General of Canada, Michaëlle Jean, formerly hosted programs for both the English and French language networks. She presented "Grands Reportages" on "RDI" and "The Passionate Eye" on CBC Newsworld as well as having her own talk show, called "Michaëlle". She also served as a substitute anchor on "Le Téléjournal".
