CJRM-FM Labrador City – New transmitters in La Grand’Terre and St. John’s


The Commission approves the applications by Radio communautaire du Labrador inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language Type A community FM radio programming undertaking CJRM-FM Labrador City in order to operate transmitters in La Grand’Terre and St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with these applications. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) set out in paragraph 6 below.


The transmitter in La Grand’Terre will operate at 96.1 MHz (channel 241A1) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 42 watts (maximum ERP of 250 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of -17.6 metres).


The transmitter in St. John’s will operate at 95.7 MHz (channel 239A1) with an ERP of 232 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 29.4 metres).


Both transmitters will broadcast the programming of CJRM-FM in order to better serve the Francophone population of La Grand’Terre and St. John’s.


The licensee stated that, with the exception of the services offered by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, its service would be the only French-language service available to the Francophone population of La Grand’Terre and St. John’s.

Condition prior to the implementation of the transmitters


The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that broadcasting certificates will be issued. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the licensee will not be able to implement the transmitters approved in this decision.
