Application 2013-1568-0, received 8 November 2013

CFNI Port Hardy and its transmitter CFPA-FM Port Alice – Licence renewal

  1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CFNI Port Hardy and its transmitter CFPA-FM Port Alice from 1 September 2014 to 31 August 2021. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. The licensee shall adhere to the conditions of licence set out in Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2009-62, as amended from time to time.
  3. As noted in Broadcasting Decision 2010-616, the licensee was found in non‑compliance in its previous licence term with its requirements relating to Canadian talent development and the filing of annual returns. The Commission notes that CFNI is in compliance with its regulatory requirements for the current licence term. The Commission therefore considers it appropriate to renew its broadcasting licence for a full seven-year term.


  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. 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.
