In order to fulfill its original commitment to Canadian content development (CCD) set out in Appendix 2 to Licensing of a new radio station to serve Owen Sound, Ontario, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-100, 9 May 2008, the licensee 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:

3. As noted in Broadcasting Decision 2010-858, CICX-FM was found in non-compliance in its previous licence term with its condition of licence relating to contributions to CCD. The Commission notes that this station had 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.


4. 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.


5. In accordance with Public Notice 1992-59, the Commission encourages the licensee to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
