Application 2013-1621-6, received 14 November 2013

CISK-FM Williams Lake – Licence renewal

  1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the ethnic radio programming undertaking CISK-FM Williams Lake, British Columbia, from 1 September 2014 to 31 August 2021. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
  2. In Broadcasting Decision 2012-703, the Commission found the licensee to be in non-compliance with its condition of licence relating to Canadian talent development contributions and with the Radio Regulations, 1986 with respect to the filing of annual reports. With respect to the current licence term, the Commission notes that the station has operated in compliance with its regulatory obligations over the current licence term. The Commission therefore finds it appropriate to renew the licence for a full seven-year term.
  3. The licensee shall continue to adhere to conditions of licence set out in Appendix 14 to Broadcasting Decision 2012-703, with the exception of condition of licence 4, which is replaced by the following:

The licensee shall not broadcast any hit material as defined in Policy regarding the broadcast of hits by English-language FM radio stations, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2009-61, 11 February 2009, as amended from time to time.


  1. Pursuant to section 22 of the Broadcasting Act, the broadcasting licence renewed in this decision will cease to have any force or effect if the broadcasting certificate issued by the Department of Industry lapses.

Employment equity

  1. 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.
