Broadcasting Licence Fees – Part II

1.      The Broadcasting Licence Fee Regulations, 1997 (the Regulations), as revised in 2010, provide for the payment of a Part II licence fee by certain licensed broadcasting undertakings. The revised Regulations were announced by the Commission in Amendments to the Broadcasting Licence Fee Regulations, 1997, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2010-476, 14 July 2010.

2.      Section 11(1) of the Regulations sets out the components for the calculation of the Part II licence fees. As per this section of the Regulations, the total annual amount to be assessed by the Commission is the lower of: a) $100,000,000; and b) 1.365% multiplied by the aggregate fee revenues for the return year terminating during the previous calendar year of all licensees whose fee revenues exceed the applicable exemption levels, less the aggregate exemption level for all those licensees for that return year. In 2010 this amounts to $139.6 million.

3.      Pursuant to section 11(3) of the Regulations, the Commission hereby announces in this public notice that the total amount of Part II licence fees to be assessed by the Commission in 2010 is $100,000,000.
