Miramichi Public Hearing – 16 January 2012
Miramichi Fellowship Center Inc. – Projected CCD Contributions
ADDENDUM to page 002-5  (DM#1659866)

Section 15 of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) require licensees of commercial radio stations to contribute an annual basic CCD contribution based on the station’s total revenues for the previous broadcast year. Licensees with total annual broadcasting revenues of less than $625,000 (as per your projections) must contribute $500 annually to eligible CCD initiatives. In the case of a new station, since it would not have broadcast during the previous broadcast year, the basic CCD contribution for the first broadcast year of operation would be $0. Therefore:

A) According to section 15 of the Regulations and based on your projected revenues, your basic annual CCD contributions should be of $500 beginning in the second year of operation (illustrated at row A of the table below).

B) According to section 8.1 of your application, you have committed to exceed basic annual CCD contributions by contributing an additional $500 of over-and-above CCD funding. When you add your basic requirements (row A) to your proposed over-and-above contributions in section 8.1 of your application, the total annual CCD contributions should be as illustrated in row B.

C) According to section 7.1 of your application, you indicate total annual contributions of $1,500 to CCD, which includes both the required basic CCD contribution and the over-and-above contribution (illustrated at row C of the table below).
