Re: 2012-0093-0 – CKGS-FM La Baie, Quebec

Dear Mr. Gilbert,

This is in reference to the above-noted application for an amendment (2012-0093-0) to the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CKGS-FM La Baie, Quebec.


  1. The Commission has audited the annual returns for 9202-1617 Québec Inc. (CKGS-FM). The Commission records indicate the following:
    • The 2009-2010 annual return was filed late, on 31 January 2011. Furthermore, the Canadian content development (CCD) form is missing.
    • The 2010-2011 annual return was filed late, on 6 February 2012.

In light of the above, this results in an apparent non-compliance with section 9(2) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) which requires a licensee to file, before 30 November of each year, their annual return for the broadcast year ending the previous 31 August.

a. Please explain the circumstances of these apparent non-compliances.

b. What measures will be put in place to ensure future compliance at all times and more particularly, as it relates to the timely filling of annual returns?

c. As it relates to the missing CCD form from your 2009-2010 annual return, please specify at what date it will be filed with the Commission.  Additionally, please specify what measures will be put in place to ensure that all relevant information/forms, including the CCD form, will from now on be included with your annual returns.

The information requested herein should be received by the Commission no later than 24 February 2012, failing which, your application may be returned to be completed and resubmitted with the Commission should you wish to pursue this proposal.

A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.

You are reminded that applicants are required to file their applications, related documents and related correspondence electronically using Access Key.

Should you need further information concerning your application, please do not hesitate to contact me by telephone at (819) 997-9350 or by fax at 819-994-0218.

Yours sincerely,
