Ottawa, 19 September 1994
Decision CRTC 94-765
Whapmagoostoo Aeyouch Telecommunications Association
Whapmagoostui, Quebec - 940208200
New native radio programming undertaking
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region held on 18 August 1994, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for a Native-language FM radio programming undertaking at Whapmagoostui, on the frequency 96.5 MHz, channel 243LP, with an effective radiated power of 10 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.
The licence term granted herein, while less than the maximum of seven years permitted under the Broadcasting Act, will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence in accordance with the Commission's regional plan for Native radio stations and to better distribute the workload within the Commission.
The Commission notes that this station will broadcast 35 hours to 41 hours per week of local programming in the Cree language.
The applicant is reminded of the requirements for Canadian musical selections set out in the Radio Regulations, 1986.
It is a condition of this licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within twelve months of the date of this decision 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 periods of time as are approved in writing by the Commission.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
