Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-47

Ottawa, 27 May 2008

Renewals for radio programming undertaking licences due to expire in 2008

Deadline for intervention/comments:

2 July 2008

[Broadcasting intervention/comments form]

The Commission announces that it has received licence renewal applications for commercial and community radio programming undertakings whose licences are due to expire on 31 August 2008.
The applicants listed in this public notice have been noted in apparent failure to comply with regulatory requirements during the current licence term. The codes A to D appearing in column 4 of the list of applications below refer to the obligations which are the object of apparent non-compliance. These obligations are listed in section 1 with corresponding codes.
* Stations identified with an asterisk have been monitored by Commission staff. The monitoring report has been placed on each licensee's public examination file. A copy can be obtained by contacting one of the CRTC documentation centres.
In addition to the conditions contained in the current licences, the Commission notes that the conditions specified in the following Public Notices apply to licence renewals:

Public Notice CRTC 2000-157 - Community radio stations

Public Notice CRTC 1999-137 - Commercial radio stations

It should be noted that in Commercial Radio Policy 2006, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-158, 15 December 2006 (Public Notice 2006-158), the Commission set out a new approach to the development and promotion of Canadian artists, which is expected to be implemented in the not too distant future. In order to reflect a new emphasis on development initiatives that lead to the creation of audio content for broadcast using Canadian resources, the Commission will replace the expression "Canadian talent development" (CTD) with "Canadian content development" (CCD). Each radio station holding a commercial radio licence will be required to make a basic annual CCD contribution based on its revenues in the previous broadcast year. The basic contribution requirement will be enacted as a regulation. However, until such time as the regulation comes into force, the Commission intends to impose the basic contribution as a condition of licence.
The condition of licence would read as follows:

The licensee shall make a basic annual contribution to Canadian content development (CCD). The amount of the contribution shall be determined in accordance with the policy set out in Commercial Radio Policy 2006, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-158, 15 December 2006, as amended from time to time (Public Notice 2006-158). The contribution shall be allocated to parties and initiatives fulfilling the definition of eligible initiatives in Public Notice 2006-158.

The licensee shall allocate 60% of this basic annual CCD contribution to FACTOR or MUSICACTION.

This condition of licence shall expire upon the coming into force of the amendments to the Radio Regulations, 1986 relating to CCD.

Section 1: Reason for non-compliance
failure to comply with the Radio Regulations, 1986, with respect to the broadcast of French-language vocal music
failure to comply with the condition of licence relating to the Canadian talent development (CTD) contribution
failure to comply with the Radio Regulations, 1986, relating to the broadcast of 35% Canadian selections pertaining to category 2 music
failure to comply with subsection 9(2) of the Radio Regulations, 1986, relating to the provision of annual reports
