CBEF Windsor – New FM transmitter in Sarnia

  1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language radio programming undertaking CBEF Windsor, Ontario, to operate an FM rebroadcasting transmitter in Sarnia. The new transmitter will allow listeners to receive ICI Radio-Canada Première’s programming originating from CBEF Windsor. The Commission received interventions in support of this application.
  2. The new transmitter will operate at 101.5 MHz (channel 268A) with an effective radiated power of 1,886 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 104.7 metres).
  3. 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.
  4. 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 3 February 2019. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted at least 60 days before this date.
