New Broadcasting Regulatory Policy for Canadian Campus and community radio
stations


Ottawa, 22 July 2010
Campus and community radio policy

*This document sets out the Commission’s revised policy for both campus and
community radio. The Commission considers it appropriate to establish a
single policy for this sector that makes provision for differences in the
two types of stations where appropriate.*

*The matters addressed by the policy include:*

    - *the role, definition and mandate of campus and community radio
    stations;*
    - *a simplified approach to licensing campus and community stations,
    including elimination of the campus instructional category, elimination of
    the distinction between Type A and Type B community stations, and revised
    provisions for developmental stations*;
    - *programming requirements*;
    - *the role of volunteers;*
    - *a new approach to funding the campus and community radio sector
    through basic Canadian content development contributions from commercial
    radio stations and the tangible benefits packages established in ownership
    transactions*;
    - *easing of limits on advertising on campus stations*;
    - *technical matters, including the Commission¬ís approach to low-power
    stations;*
    - *how the Commission will deal with competitive applications;*
    - *other means of delivering programming, such as new media*;
    - *Canadian ownership and control requirements and collection of
    ownership information*;
    - *cultural diversity*; *and*
    - *other matters relating to the campus and community radio sector.*

*Finally, the Commission sets out how it will implement the various aspects
of the new policy.*
