To ensure continuity of direction, the Commission also encourages the applicant 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.



Employment Equity

It encourages the licensee to consider these issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
