Decision CRTC 2001-718

Ottawa, 28 November 2001

La Radio communautaire du comté
Rimouski, Quebec 2000-2313-5

Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 2001-104
dated 28 September 2001

Licence amendment for CKMN-FM Rimouski


The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the type B community radio programming undertaking CKMN-FM Rimouski, by authorizing the licensee to replace the programming obligations currently set out as conditions of licence in its Promise of Performance.


The amendment of this licence follows the new Community radio policy which, among other things, removed the requirement for licensees to submit a Promise of Performance setting out programming obligations and the limit on advertising for Type B community radio stations. Type B stations now have the same advertising flexibility as Type A stations (Public Notice CRTC 2000-13).


The following conditions of licence replace the ones in the current Promise of Performance. Specifically, the licensee must:

· devote, during each broadcast week, a minimum of 20% of its musical selections to musical selections from content subcategories other than the Pop, rock and dance subcategory (content subcategory 21), as defined in Public Notice CRTC 2000-14, as amended from time to time;
· devote, during each broadcast week, a minimum of 5% of its musical selections to musical selections from Special Interest Music (content category 3), as defined in PN 2000-14, as amended from time to time; and
· devote, during each broadcast week, at least 25% of its programming to Spoken Word (content category 1) which is comprised of News (content subcategory 11) and Spoken Word - Other (content subcategory 12), with an emphasis on community-oriented spoken word, as defined in PN 2000-14, as amended from time to time.
