Decision CRTC 2001-392

Ottawa, 9 July 2001

West Coast Community T.V. Association
Tofino, British Columbia 2001-0283-0

Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 2001-49
dated 8 May 2001

Addition of CFMI-FM


The Commission approves the application to amend the licence for the radiocommunication distribution undertaking serving Tofino, by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter for the distribution, in non-encrypted mode, of CFMI-FM New Westminster. The licensee will distribute the service on the frequency 104.7 MHz (channel 284LP), with an effective radiated power of 20 watts.


The authority will be effective and the licence will be amended only at such time as:

· the licensee confirms in writing that it is ready to begin operation of the transmitter. This must take place within 12 months of today's date. Any request for an extension to that deadline requires Commission approval and must be made in writing within that period.

· the Department of Industry, having advised that the application is conditionally technically acceptable, has determined that there is no unacceptable interference with NAV/COM services and indicated that it will issue a broadcasting certificate (section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act).


The technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service. The applicant would have to select another frequency for the operation of the service if required to do so to permit the best use of the frequency band.


The Commission acknowledges the interventions submitted in support of this application.
