Media and communication in Canada are intrinsic to the very construction and reproduction of Canada itself and to the possibility of Canada. For this reason, communication and media theory stand as Canada's most distinctive and profound contributions. Analysis of communication is important as it gives an understanding of Canada itself. This article presents familiar dialectics of Canadian communication that have deep roots in Canadian media theory. It also discusses how these media theories give shape to the political economies, the regulatory regimes, and the dominant ideas that dominate politics and media in Canada. Furthermore, the article discusses the globalization of the Canadian media and how the Canadian media experience can become universal.
