The Commission notes that this station is a Type B FM native radio station in accordance with Public Notice CRTC 1990-89 dated 20 September 1990 entitled "Native Broadcasting Policy".
The Commission notes that CHRG-FM will broadcast 20 hours per week in Micmac, 5 hours in French and 31 hours in English.

It is a condition of licence that the licensee broadcast no more than an average of 4 minutes of advertising per hour per day, with a maximum of 6 minutes in any single hour, in accordance with the native radio policy for Type B stations.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
