New community radio station in Elora and Fergus – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by Centre Wellington Community Radio Inc. to change the authorized contours of the new community radio programming undertaking to serve Elora and Fergus, Ontario that was approved in English-language community FM radio station in Elora and Fergus, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2011-278, 29 April 2001.

The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

3.      The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate when it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.

4.      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.
