CPAC'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR
This year, CPAC celebrates its 20th anniversary as Canada's window on Parliament, politics and public affairs programming.
Since 1992, a consortium of cable companies has invested over $50 million in the channel to ensure that viewers have access to democracy in action. Canada was the first country in the world to televise Parliamentary proceedings.
CPAC was created in 1992 to carry these televised proceedings at no cost to taxpayers. Since then, the channel has expanded its scope to include hosted programs, documentaries, live events and more gavel-to-gavel coverage than any other network. CPAC is proud of its roots and evolution.

CPAC is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a number of features and events, including a long-term Digital Archive project.
