CBKA-FM La Ronge – New transmitter in Creighton


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBKA-FM La Ronge, Saskatchewan in order to operate a transmitter in Creighton, Saskatchewan to rebroadcast the programming of its national English-language network service Radio One. There were no interventions to this application. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 4 below.


The new transmitter will operate at 93.3 MHz (channel 227A1) with an effective radiated power of 267 watts.


The CBC noted that Creighton is within the coverage contours of its station CBWF-FM Flin Flon, Manitoba. However, it explained that the new transmitter is intended to provide Creighton with programming originating in Saskatchewan. The licensee added that the transmitter in Creighton will share CBCs existing transmission site in Flin Flon.

Condition prior to the implementation of the transmitter


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 a broadcasting certificate will be issued. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the applicant will not be able to implement the transmitter approved in this decision.


The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 9 October 2011. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
