Ottawa, 29 July 2002

Christian Youth Centre (Kingston), doing business
under the name and style of Camp IAWAH

Westport area, Ontario

Application 2001-1409-1
Public Hearing in the National Capital Region
6 May 2002

Low-power radio station


The Commission approves the application by Christian Youth Centre (Kingston), doing business under the name and style of Camp IAWAH, for a broadcasting licence to operate a low-power English-language FM radio programming undertaking near Westport.


The licensee will operate the station during the months of July and August only and will broadcast four to five hours of musical programming and 15 minutes of religious programming per day. The schedule will not include commercial advertising.


The station will operate at 106.3 MHz (channel 292LP) with an effective radiated power of 0.23 watts.


The licence will expire 31 August 2008.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.


The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate when it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.


The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, no licence may be issued until the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


Furthermore, the licence for this undertaking will only be issued once the licensee has informed the Commission in writing that it is prepared to commence operations. The undertaking must be operational at the earliest possible date, and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 29 July 2004. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted at least 60 days before this date.


Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.


In accordance with Implementation of an employment equity policy, Public Notice CRTC 1992-59, 1 September 1992, 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.
