Public Service Announcements

A Public Service Announcement (PSA) is an announcement intended to provide a service to the public. PSAs provide information about a non-commercial service in the public interest, announcements of upcoming public events or safety information. Only non-profit or not-for-profit organizations, educational, and government agencies may place a PSA on the Community Bulletin Board (CBB).

Groups Who Can Submit a Request


Non-profit organizations, not-for-profit groups, educational agencies, and government agencies may use BCTV's bulletin board for public announcements.

Submission Deadline


A PSA should be submitted a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the event date.
