Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-43
5 April 2006

Use of frequency 106.7 MHz by the new native FM radio station in Montréal


The Commission approves the application by Aboriginal Voices Radio Inc. (AVR) in order to operate its new native Type B FM radio programming undertaking in Montréal at 106.7 MHz (channel 294A) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 320 watts. AVR had originally proposed to operate its new station at 100.1 MHz (channel 261A) with an ERP of 1,000 watts.


AVR filed this application further to the Commission's direction in Native FM radio station in Montréal, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-195, 2 July 2003 (Decision 2003-195). In Decision 2003-195, the Commission stated that it would only issue a licence for this station provided that AVR submitted an application proposing technical parameters predicated on the use of another FM frequency that would be acceptable to both the Commission and the Department of Industry (the Department).


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


The Commission reminds the applicant 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.
