CHVD-FM Dolbeau and CHRL-FM Roberval - licence renewals


The Commission renews the broadcasting licences for the commercial FM radio programming undertakings CHVD-FM Dolbeau and CHRL-FM Roberval from 1 January 20091 to 31 August 2015. The licences will be subject to the conditions set out therein as well as to the conditions set out in the appendix to this decision.


The Commission received a comment from l'Association québécoise de l'industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo (ADISQ). In its comment, ADISQ highlighted its concerns about musical diversity, the lack of new musical selections, emerging artists and contributions to Canadian content development (CCD). The public record is available on the Commission's website at under "Public Proceedings."


The Commission reminds the licensee that it is required to adhere to the requirements relating to contributions to CCD 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 Amendments to the Radio Regulations, 1986 - Implementation of the Commercial Radio Policy 2006 and the Digital Radio Policy - Regulatory Policy, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-67, 23 July 2008.


Because this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and files reports concerning employment equity with the department of Human Resources and Social Development Canada, its employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.
