Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-13 dated 19 January 1996, the Commission renews the licences held by Regional Cable TV (Atlantic) Inc., for the cable distribution undertakings serving the above-noted communities, from
1 September 1996 to 31 August 2002.
 The licence term granted herein, while less than the maximum of seven years permitted by the Broadcasting Act, will enable the Commission to consider the next licence renewal of these undertakings in accordance with the Commission's regional plan and to better distribute the workload within the Commission. This term is not reflective of any Commission concern regarding the licensee's performance.
 The operation of these undertakings is regulated pursuant to Parts I, III and IV of the Cable Television Regulations, 1986 and the licences will be subject to the conditions in effect under the current licences, as well as to those conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued.
The licensee is authorized, by condition of licence, to distribute the programming service of the Atlantic Satellite Network (ASN), received via satellite, provided that it is distributed on an unrestricted channel of the basic service.
In Public Notice CRTC 1992-59 dated 1 September 1992 and entitled "Imple-mentation of an Employment Equity Policy", the Commission announced that the employment equity practices of broadcasters would be subject to examination by the Commission. In this regard, the Commission encourages the licensee to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
This decision is to be appended to each licence.
