Decision CRTC 99-379
Ottawa, 30 August 1999
Radio Nord inc.
Hawkesbury, Ontario – 199903456
Application processed by Public Notice CRTC 1999-100 dated 21 June 1999
Licence renewal for CHPR-FM
1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for CHPR-FM Hawkesbury, from 1 September 1999 to 31 August 2005, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
2. The Commission has granted a licence term that is less than the maximum of seven years permitted by the Broadcasting Act. This will allow the next licence renewal of the undertaking to be considered in accordance with the regional plan established by the Commission and does not reflect any concern regarding the licensee’s performance.
3. The licensee is authorized, by condition of licence, to broadcast a maximum of one hour per broadcast week of English-language programming consisting of newscasts, interviews with members of the community, special interest features concerning social and cultural activities of the community, as well as advertising up to a maximum of 5 minutes per day.
4. The Commission notes that this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act that came into effect on 24 October 1996 (1996 EEA), and therefore files reports concerning employment equity with Human Resources Development Canada. As a result of a consequential amendment to the Broadcasting Act, the Commission no longer has the authority to apply its employment equity policy to any undertaking that is subject to the 1996 EEA.
5. Section 22 of the Broadcasting Act states that the Commission may not renew a licence unless the Department of Industry has certified that the licensee has been or will be issued a broadcasting certificate. Accordingly, this renewal is subject to the issuance of technical certification by the Department of Industry.
