3. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding these applications.

4. As noted in Broadcasting Decision 2010-856, CKPC-FM and CKPC were found in non-compliance in their previous licence term with section 9(2) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 relating to the provision of annual returns, as well as with their requirements regarding contributions to Canadian talent development and Canadian content development. The Commission notes that these stations have been found in compliance with their regulatory requirements over the current licence term. The Commission therefore finds it appropriate to renew the licences for a full seven-year term.


5. Pursuant to section 22 of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission reminds the licensee that the broadcasting licences will cease to have any force or effect if the broadcasting certificates issued by the Department of Industry lapse.

6. The Commission further reminds the licensee that it must fulfill all of its remaining tangible benefits commitments resulting from the change in effective control approved in the Commission’s letter decision dated 28 August 2009, as announced in Broadcasting Information Bulletin 2009-634.

Employment equity

7. Because this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and files reports concerning employment equity with the Department of Employment and Social Development, its employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.
