On July 24, 2014, it was announced that DHX Media's application to acquire control of several services from Bell Media Ltd. was approved by CRTC. DHX Media now wholly owns and controls Disney Junior, Disney XD and Family Channel.

“Family is the number one channel across all kids' audiences in Canada, and we are delighted that CRTC approval puts us on track to close the acquisition of this preeminent outlet, along with the highly successful Disney XD and the Disney Junior channels,” said Michael Donovan, CEO of DHX Media. “With the largest independent library of children's television series in the world, our primary focus at DHX is providing entertainment for kids and families. The acquisition of these high-quality kids' brands complements and enhances all areas of our business and positions us for our next stage of growth. We look forward to welcoming the teams from these channels to DHX.”

As part of the Social Benefits associated with DHX Media's recent acquisition, we are proud to announce that $600,000 will be dedicated to the CFC to a new DHX-Family Drama Program.
