Radio Canada International

Radio Canada International (RCI) is the international broadcast service of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. As in many other countries, it originally began on shortwave radio, later expanding to satellite. Programs can also be downloaded or heard over the Internet.

RCI produces much of its own programming, especially for languages other than English and French (which are often from the CBC domestic service). Budget cuts by the Canadian Parliament have forced it to downsize, but it still remains the pre-eminent neutral international broadcaster of North America, not facing the percieved U.S bias of the Voice of America.

The main studios for RCI are in Montréal. The main transmitter site is Sackville, New Brunswick, and is also leased to or traded with other international broadcasters.
