Unis is a Canadian French-language Discretionary service. The channel broadcasts general entertainment programming, with a particular focus on highlighting French Canadians outside of Quebec—the country's largest and only officially uni-lingual French-speaking province.

The channel shares a broadcasting licence with its sister channel, TV5 Québec Canada (TV5), which focuses on international and Quebecois Francophone programming.

History[edit]

After the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission's (CRTC) call for applications regarding services who wish to be regulated to be distributed on the basic package of all television service providers in Canada, TV5's application was made public in January 2013. Within this application, TV5 proposed an additional service, Unis, which would operate under TV5's existing broadcast licence as a secondary feed, and would "offer programming focused primarily on reflecting the diversity of the Canadian Francophonie," while TV5 would continue to focus on offering programming primarily reflecting the international Francophonie.[1]

The application was approved on August 8, 2013.[2]

The channel launched on September 1, 2014.[3]

Programming[edit]

Programmes airing on the channel include Couleurs locales, a cultural newsmagaine series; Balade à Toronto, a music series showcasing live performances by francophone artists; Vu de l’intérieur, a documentary series on homes and interior design; J’habite ici, a documentary series showcasing towns and cities through the eyes of local francophone residents; Qu’est-ce qu’on sauve?, a series profiling people committed to protecting animals or safeguarding historical buildings in Ontario; Ma caravane au Canada; Canada plus grand que nature; 5e élément and Pense vite!.[3]

In 2015, the channel announced that it had commissioned its first original dramatic series, St. Nickel.[4] The series, filmed in Sudbury, Ontario by Carte Blanche Films, debuted on Unis in 2016.[4]
