Ottawa, 16 February 1994
Decision CRTC 94-37
Corporation Tepatcimo Kitotakan
Obedjiwan, Quebec - 930926100
New Native radio programming undertaking
Following a Public Hearing in Fredericton beginning on 7 December 1993, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for a Native-language FM radio programming undertaking at Obedjiwan, on the frequency 89.9 MHz, channel 210, with an effective radiated power of 50 watts.
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1990-89 dated 20 September 1990 entitled "Native Broadcasting Policy", the Commission will issue a licence for a Type A FM native radio undertaking. This licence will expire on 31 August 1999, and will be subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of other native radio undertakings.
The Commission notes that the Corporation Tepatcimo Kitotakan will broadcast 87 hours per week of programming in the Attikamek language, of which 74 hours and 30 minutes will be produced locally and 12 hours and 30 minutes will originate from the Société de Communication Atikamekw Montagnais (SOCAM) network. The applicant is reminded of the requirements for Canadian musical selections set out in the Radio Regulations, 1986.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this application is condi- tionally technically acceptable, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will only be issued once it has been determined that the proposed tech-nical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
In accordance with subsection 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.
It is a condition of licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within twelve months of the date of receipt of the DOC notification referred to in the preceding paragraph or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete implementation before the expiry of this period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
