Ottawa, 13 December 1994
Decision CRTC 94-913
Pelly Bay Broadcasting Society
Pelly Bay, Northwest Territories - 940362700

New native radio programming undertaking

Following a Public Hearing in Toronto beginning on 3 October 1994, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English- and Native-language FM radio programming undertaking at Pelly Bay, on the frequency 107.1 MHz, channel 296LP, with an effective radiated power of 24.4 watts.
In accordance with Public Notice CRTC 1990-89 dated 20 September 1990 entitled "Native Broadcasting Policy", the Commission will issue a licence for a Type A FM native radio undertaking. This licence will expire on 31 August 1999, and will be subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
Although the licence term granted herein is less than the maximum of seven years permitted by the Broadcasting Act, this is for the purpose of enabling the Commission to consider the next licence renewal of this undertaking in accordance with the Commission's regional plan for Native radio undertakings across Canada and to better distribute the Commission's workload.
The Commission notes that this station will broadcast 10 hours per week of local programming in the Inuktitut language with an additional 116 hours in English, originating from the CBC Northern Radio Service.
The applicant is reminded of the requirements for Canadian musical selections set out in the Radio Regulations, 1986.
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 this decision 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.
