The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)/Radio-Canada is set to air the Paris 2024 and Milan-Cortina 2026 Paralympic Games after partnering with the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC).

The CPC, which has been the rightsholder for the Paralympics in Canada since Sochi 2014, announced the deal.

"We are so thrilled to build on our partnership with CBC/Radio-Canada for the 2024 and 2026 Games," said Karen O'Neill, chief executive of the Canadian Paralympic Committee.

"The broadcast of the Paralympic Games is so important to highlight the incredible impact sport can have and to grow Paralympic sport in Canada, and together we have made many strides in recent years to advance the quantity and quality of the coverage.

"We look forward to continuing this great work with CBC/Radio-Canada over the next few years to celebrate and showcase the remarkable performances of the nation’s Paralympians with all Canadians."

For the 2024 and 2026 events, CBC/Radio-Canada will play a larger role as it will sublicense the rights as the official broadcaster of the Games.

Canada's national broadcaster will provide Paralympic Games coverage across television, streaming, and digital platforms in both English and French.

"We are proud to renew our commitment to presenting the very best in sport through our partnership with the Canadian Paralympic Committee,” said Catherine Tait, President and chief executive of CBC/Radio-Canada.

"As Canada's Paralympic Network, it is a privilege to bring audiences the joy of watching Canada's talented Paralympians as they compete on the world stage."

The Paris 2024 Paralympic Games are scheduled from August 28 to September 8 of that year before March 6 to 15, 2026, will see the Milan-Cortina event take place.
