2. The licensee shall devote, in each broadcast week, 12% or more of its musical selections from content category 3 (Special interest music) to Canadian selections broadcast in their entirety.



  • In accordance with the Campus radio policy, Public Notice CRTC 2000-12, 28 January 2000, the Commission expects the licensee to take all the necessary steps to ensure that its board of directors includes balanced representation from among the student body, the associated college or university (for example, faculty or administration), station volunteers, and the community at large. To ensure continuity of direction, the Commission also encourages the licensee to establish positions on its board of directors with terms of more than one year. In addition, the Commission reminds the licensee that, in accordance with the requirements of P.C. 1997-486, 8 April 1997, Direction to the CRTC (Ineligibility of non-Canadians), as amended by P.C. 1998-1268, 15 July 1998, the Chair and not less than 80% of the members of the board of directors must be Canadians ordinarily resident in Canada.


  • The Commission considers that campus 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.
