Route reference: Part 1 application posted on 11 August 2011

Ottawa, 16 December 2011

Native Communication Inc.
Selkirk, Manitoba

Application 2011-1168-2

CICY-FM Selkirk – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves an application by Native Communication Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the English- and Native-language Type B Native FM radio programming undertaking CICY-FM Selkirk, Manitoba by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 106.4 to 144.8 metres and by relocating the transmitter. The Commission received interventions in support of this application.

2.      The licensee indicated that the reception of its signal has been problematic and unreliable in the south, south-west and south-east of Winnipeg, and, due to the poor signal reception, it is losing its ability to serve Winnipeg residents in the affected areas and limits its capacity to attract new listeners.

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.

Secretary General
