Decision CRTC 2001-339

Ottawa, 15 June 2001

Société de Communication Ikito Pikogan ltée
Pikogan, Quebec 2000-0663-6 

Application processed by Public Notice CRTC 2000-105 dated 17 July 2000

Licence renewal for native radio station CKAG-FM


The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the Type B native radio undertaking CKAG-FM Pikogan, from 1 September 2001 to 31 August 2008, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.


The licensee applied to renew its licence under the same terms and conditions as its current licence.


Decision CRTC 92-672, which originally licensed CKAG-FM, indicated that the station broadcasts 48 hours per week of programming, of which 42 hours are local programming and 6 hours originate from the CBC North - Quebec. In the local programming offered by CKAG-FM, 33 hours and 20 minutes are in Algonquian, 4 hours and 20 minutes in French and 4 hours and 20 minutes in English.


In Public Notice CRTC 2001-70 released today, the Commission introduced changes to conditions of licence for some native radio undertakings. As indicated in the notice, the Commission no longer imposes limits on the advertising broadcast by native radio stations and networks. However, it requires that they broadcast a Canadian content level of at least 35% in popular (category 2) music. Consequently, it is a condition of licence that the licensee devote a minimum of 35% of all Category 2 musical selections broadcast, during each broadcast week, to Canadian selections.


In Public Notice 2001-70, the Commission further encourages native radio stations, that wish to broadcast wrap-around programming after their daily sign-off, to use programming from another native radio station or network.
