We also have about five or six national radio stations and several local that also is non-comercial public service.

Everything is commercialy driven here in the states and I am sick off it! You can't even watch an educational program without being bombareded with Burger King, Mazda and Prescription drug commercials.

Community access broadcasting is whare you find interesting non-commercial programs.

Canada has two non-commercial English-language radio networks: CBC Radio 1 (news, talk and public affairs) and CBC Radio 2 (mostly classical music). The network's web site also advertises a new, Internet-only Radio 3. I believe the CBC's French-language division, SRC (Société Radio-Canada) has a similar setup.

Some cities have non-commercial radio stations which, as in the U.S., are often between 88.1 and 91.9 FM.

Non-commercial television is fairly limited. All the main TV networks, including CBC, are commercial. There are two non-commercial networks in Ontario, TVOntario in English and TFO in French. There might be a couple of others in other provinces.
