CISQ-FM Squamish - Licence renewal


The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CISQ-FM Squamish, from 1 September 2006 to 31 August 2013.


The Commission received one intervention in support of this application.


The licence will be subject to the conditions set out in New licence form for commercial radio stations, Public Notice CRTC 1999-137, 24 August 1999, as well as to the following conditions:
  • The licensee shall, in any broadcast week, devote a maximum of 85% of its musical selections from content category 2 to hit material, as defined in Revised policy on the use of hits by English-language FM radio stations, Public Notice CRTC 1997-42, 23 April 1997, as amended from time to time.
  • CISQ-FM operates in a single-station market as set out in Local programming policy for FM radio - Definition of a single-station market, Public Notice CRTC 1993-121, 17 August 1993. Accordingly, it is exempt from the requirement that, in order to solicit or accept local advertising, one-third of its programming must be local. Nevertheless, the licensee is required to continue to broadcast, at a minimum, 3 hours each week of station-produced programming on CISQ-FM.


Because this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and files reports concerning employment equity with theDepartment of Human Resources and Skills Development, its employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.
