CIMM-FM Ucluelet - Acquisition of assets


The Commission approves the application by CIMM-FM Radio Ltd. for authority to acquire, as part of an intra-corporate reorganization, the assets of the English-language FM radio programming undertaking CIMM-FM Ucluelet, from McBride Communications & Media Inc. The applicant also requested a broadcasting licence to operate this undertaking under the same terms and conditions as those specified in English-language radio station in Ucluelet, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-69, 14 March 2006 (Decision 2006-69).


CIMM-FM Radio Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of McBride Communications & Media Inc. which in turn is owned and controlled by Mr. Matthew Gordon McBride. The Commission notes that this application follows an intra-corporate reorganization with no impact on the ultimate control of the broadcasting undertaking.


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


The Commission notes that the undertaking is not yet in operation. The Commission will issue a broadcasting licence to CIMM-FM Radio Limited expiring 31 August 2012 once the requirements for the issuance of the licence set out in Decision 2006-69 have been met.


In accordance with Implementation of an employment equity policy, Public Notice CRTC 1992-59, 1 September 1992, the Commission encourages the applicant to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
