The Commission renews the broadcasting licences for the English-language commercial radio programming undertakings listed below from 1 September 2008 to 31 August 2015.

These licences will be subject to the conditions set out in Public Notice 1999-137, with the exception of condition no. 5 and of condition no. 1, the latter of which is replaced by the following condition:

If the licensee originates 42 or more hours of programming in any broadcast week, the licensee shall adhere to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' Equitable Portrayal Code, as amended from time to time and approved by the Commission. However, the application of the foregoing condition of licence will be suspended if the licensee is a member in good standing of the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council.


The Commission reminds the licensees that, as of 1 September 2008, they will be required to adhere to the requirements relating to contributions to Canadian content development set out in section 15 of the Radio Regulations, 1986, as amended by Regulations Amending the Radio Regulations, 1986, SOR/2008-177, 28 May 2008, announced in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-67.


The Commission did not receive any interventions with respect to these applications.

Employment equity


Because the licensees Maritime Broadcasting System Limited and Rawlco Radio Ltd. are subject to the Employment Equity Act and file reports concerning employment equity with the department of Human Resources and Social Development Canada, their employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.


In accordance with Public Notice 1992-59, the Commission encourages the remaining licensees to consider employment equity issues in their hiring practices and in all other aspects of their management of human resources.
