CFER-TV Rimouski - Licence amendment
- The Commission approves the application by TVA Group Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language conventional television programming undertaking CFER-TV Rimouski, Quebec, to replace its existing analog transmitter with a digital transmitter. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
- The new CFER-DT transmitter will operate on channel 11 with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 1,732 watts (maximum ERP of 3,300 watts) and an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 430.1 metres.
- The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
- The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 16 February 2017. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
Public service announcements
- The Commission expects the licensee to broadcast public service announcements and to inform viewers of the existence of the new transmitter by way of its website in a manner consistent with the requirements set out in sections 3 and 4 of the appendix to Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2011-198. Furthermore, the Commission expects the licensee to do this for a period of at least three months from the day this authorization is issued and before the licensee ceases to broadcast in analog or changes channel, whichever is sooner.
