CHOC-FM Saint-Rémi - Licence renewal and amendment


The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the French-language Type B community radio programming undertaking CHOC-FM Saint-Rémi, from 1 September 2005 to 31 August 2012.


The Commission also approves the licensee's application to delete the current condition of licence requiring it to devote a minimum of 40% of its programming to spoken word programming. Consistent with the Community radio policy, Public Notice CRTC 2000-13, 28 January 2000, the licence will instead be subject to the following condition:

In each broadcast week, the licensee shall devote 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 Public Notice CRTC 2000-141, as amended from time to time.


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


The licence will also be subject to the conditions set out in New licence form for community radio stations, Public Notice CRTC 2000-157, 16 November 2000.


The Commission considers that community radio stations should be particularly sensitive to employment equity issues in order to reflect fully the communities they serve. It encourages the licensee to consider these issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
