In March of 2022, our production team was asked to produce another COVID-19 vaccine public service announcement for the Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle (BANAC). Hector Copegog is an elder in the Indigenous Community that includes within it Simcoe County, and as such he is respected by many. This video was recorded in our new studio using greenscreen.
We would like to thank the following sponsors of the Ontario Community Awareness Network. These businesses show they care about our shared community by helping us to provide a not-for-profit truly local voice to you and your neighbours. They also enable our crew to be able to continue providing donated services to promote local benevolent community groups and charities based in The City of Barrie, the Town of Innisfil, and the Township of Oro-Medonte.

Five Points Media has recently transitioned to become an active part of a new provincially registered not-for-profit corporation called the Ontario Community Awareness Network. To the best of our knowledge, ours will be the only community channel of its kind in the province if not the entire country.
We are looking for new programming ideas, with our focus being mostly on fringe and minority groups whose members are mostly ignored by mainstream media. These include, but are not limited to, the Indigenous population, People of Colour, members of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community, and people of various cultures and religions.
We will continue to donate all video and media services to registered charities and benevolent not-for-profit groups that promote unity and support all members of the community. Our eventual goal will be to expand our programming to cover all of Ontario through a network of regional bureau facilities. This service will help all people in Ontario to learn about each other and work in unity.
