A response to an inquiry of the Heritage Ministry by Alberta Conservative MP Rachael Thomas uncovered the Trudeau government spent $4,035,000 on advertising with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

"During the 2023-24 fiscal year CBC/Radio-Canada earned a total of $4,034,971 in advertising revenue from government departments, agencies, and other Crown corporations."

The single largest advertiser was the Government of Canada directly, with an annual ad buy of $3.1 million, 10 times the size of the next largest spender.

Second on the list of CBC ad spenders was the Royal Canadian Mint at $289,857.

CBC's execs have recently come under scrutiny for claiming chronic underfunding at the corporation and threatening massive layoffs while handing out heavy bonuses to the upper echelons of management.
