  Ottawa, 30 May 2007
  University of Toronto Community Radio Inc.
Toronto, Ontario
  Application 2007-0454-5, received 21 March 2007
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2007-45
23 April 2007

CIUT-FM Toronto - Use of the SCMO channel

1. The Commission approves the application by University of Toronto Community Radio Inc. (UTCR), licensee of CIUT-FM Toronto, for authority to use a subsidiary communications multiplex operations (SCMO) channel1 for the purpose of broadcasting a predominantly Korean-language radio service.
2. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
3. The Commission's policy regarding services using the SCMO channel of FM stations is set out in Services using the vertical blanking interval (television) or subsidiary communications multiplex operation (FM) channel, Public Notice CRTC 1989-23, 23 March 1989 (Public Notice 1989-23).
4. The policy states that the Commission would be concerned if an SCMO service were to have a negative impact on existing local conventional ethnic broadcasters.No such broadcaster opposed this application. The Commission is satisfied that approval of this application will not cause undue negative impact on existing local conventional ethnic radio stations.
5. The Commission reminds UTCR that, as stated in section 3(1)(h) of the Broadcasting Act it is responsible for the programs that it broadcasts. It is therefore expected to ensure that its SCMO service is operated in a responsible manner and to adhere to the guidelines regarding the provision of SCMO services set out in Appendix A to Public Notice 1989-23.
