History

The Alberta Native Communication Society (ANCS) was formed originally in 1966 as the Cree Radio Program of Northern Alberta and was incorporated as a non-profit society in 1968.
The Society’s mandate was to produce and provide communications of all media from an Indigenous perspective to the Indigenous Peoples of Alberta. Their activities included print, radio, tv and film. Its audio-visual production activities made the ANCS the equivalent of an educational broadcaster similar to ACCESS or TVO. The society went bankrupt in 1983 after its funding was withdrawn and its video/film assets were sold to the Aboriginal Multi-Media Society (AMMSA).
