CFCH-FM Chase - Acquisition of assets


The Commission approves the application by Chase and District Community Radio Society to acquire from Chase and District Lions Community Club the assets of the English-language developmental community FM radio programming undertaking CFCH-FM Chase. The applicant also requested a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of the undertaking under the same terms and conditions as those set out in the current licence.


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


Upon surrender of the current licence, the Commission will issue a new broadcasting licence to Chase and District Community Radio Society. The new licence will expire 6 October 2008,the current licence expiry date, and will be subject to the same terms and conditions of licence as those set out in the current licence, as stipulated in Developmental community FM radio station in Chase, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-445, 6 October 2004.


The Commission notes that, following the transaction approved herein, effective control of the licensee will be exercised by its board of directors whereby not less than 80% of the directors and of the members will be Canadians at all times. The Commission expects the licensee to file amended bylaws including a provision to ensure its compliance with the Direction to the CRTC (Ineligibility of non-Canadians).

Employment equity


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.
