Re: Part 1 application 2020-0086-8 – CFAI-FM Edmundston, New Brunswick – Extension to the deadline of the intervention period

Dear Mr. D’Amours,

This is in reference to the above-mentioned Part 1 application submitted by La Coopérative des Montagnes Limitée to amend the broadcasting licence of CFAI-FM Edmundston to increase the transmitter’s power, in order to improve the quality of the station’s signal.

Section 28(1)(a) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules) provides that we may request parties to file information, particulars or documents where needed.

On July 24, 2020, Commission staff sent a procedural letter addressed to France St-Onges requesting that additional information be filed with respect to the technical issues the licensee is attempting to resolve. In a follow-up done on August 11, 2020, you informed Commission staff that Mr. St-Onges was no longer employed at CFAI-FM Edmundston and that you would take charge of the file. You subsequently confirmed to Commission staff that you would file your response by September 4, 2020. On September 2, you filed your response and this information has now been added to the public record of the above-mentioned application.

In light of the new information that was added to the record of this proceeding, the deadline for filing interventions relating to application 2020-0086-8 will be extended in order to allow interested parties to submit their observations on said information.

Consequently, the deadlines for the Part 1 process related to the above-noted application will be modified as follows:

The Commission requires the response or other documents to be submitted electronically by using the secured service “My CRTC Account” (Partner Log In or GCKey) and filling out the “Broadcasting Cover Page” located on this web page. Also on this web page you will find information on the submission of applications to the Commission on the page titled “Filing Broadcasting and Canadian Program Certification documents with the CRTC: Privacy and Security”.

A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.

Should you need further information concerning this application, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail at or by telephone at 873-353-9360.
