Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 2001-45
dated 20 April 2001

Licence renewal for CKTS


The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for CKTS Sherbrooke, from 1 September 2001 to 31 August 2008, subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued, as also set out in Public Notice CRTC 1999-137.


The Commission encourages the licensee to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources (Public Notice CRTC 1992-59).


The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that it is prepared to renew the Broadcasting Certificate for a period of two years only, expiring 31 August 2003. With respect to the operation of this undertaking beyond this period, the Commission reminds the licensee that, in accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, it may not issue, amend or renew a broadcasting licence unless the Department of Industry has certified that it will issue a broadcasting certificate.


The Commission has examined the submission filed by the Association québécoise de l'industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo (ADISQ) regarding this licence renewal application. As noted by the licensee, the submission pertains to French-language stations and this is not addressed to the English-language station CKTS.
