Ottawa, 18 February 1993
Decision CRTC 93-71
Native Communication Inc.
Cross Lake, Manitoba - 921183000
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region held on 19 January 1993, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English- and Native-language radiocommunication distribution undertaking at Cross Lake, on the frequency 93.5 MHz, with an effective radiated power of 9 watts.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1998, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued. This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of other undertakings in the region.
The undertaking will broadcast 126 hours per week of programming from the Native Communication Inc. network, originating from Thompson, Manitoba and the Aboriginal Multi-Media Society of Alberta's studios at Lac La Biche (CFWE-FM). Programming will be broadcast in the English, Cree, Saulteaux, Dene and Ojibway languages.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will only be issued once it has been determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services. In accordance with subsection 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.
It is a condition of licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within twelve months of the date of receipt of the DOC notification referred to in the preceding paragraph or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete implementation before the expiry of this period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
