2. The licensee shall adhere to the conditions of licence set out in Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2009-62, as amended from time to time. In addition, CJUI-FM shall adhere to the conditions of licence set out in Appendix 3 to Broadcasting Decision 2008-62, with the exception of condition of licence 1. Further, in order to fulfill its original commitment to Canadian content development (CCD) set out in that appendix, CJUI-FM shall, in addition to any contributions required under section 15 of the Radio Regulations, 1986, as amended from time to time, contribute the following amounts to CCD by condition of licence:

3. As noted in Broadcasting Decision 2010-616, CFBV, CFLD, CIRX-FM, CKBX and CKCQ-FM were found in non-compliance in their previous licence term with their conditions of licence relating to Canadian talent development contributions and section 9(2) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) relating to the provision of annual returns. CIRX-FM was also found in non-compliance with section 15 of the Regulations relating to CCD. 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.

4. Further, as noted in Broadcasting Decision 2010-625, CJCD-FM was also found in non-compliance in its previous licence term with section 15 of the Regulations. The Commission notes that this station has been found in compliance with its regulatory requirements over the current licence term. The Commission therefore finds it appropriate to renew the licence for a full seven-year term.


5. Pursuant to section 22 of the Broadcasting Act, the broadcasting licences renewed in this decision will cease to have any force or effect if the broadcasting certificates issued by the Department of Industry lapse.

Employment equity

6. 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.
