CFNV Montréal – Licence renewal

  1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial AM radio programming undertaking CFNV Montréal, Quebec, from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2023. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application. The terms and conditions of licence are set out in the appendix to this decision.
  2. In AM radio stations in Montréal, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2011-721, 21 November 2011, the Commission approved an application for a broadcasting licence to operate this radio station. However, Commission records indicate that the station was not in operation for the majority of the current licence term. This short-term renewal will allow for an earlier review of the licensee’s compliance with its regulatory obligations over the course of the next licence 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.
