Canadian Association of Broadcasters

The Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB) is the national voice of Canada's private broadcasters, representing the vast majority of Canadian programming services, including private radio and television stations, specialty, pay and pay-per-view services.

2006 marked the 80th Anniversary of the CAB. Established by the pioneers of Canadian broadcasting on January 28 1926, the CAB was formed to defend the interests of Canada’s private broadcasters and to ensure the ongoing vitality and strength of the Canadian broadcasting system.
