On July 22nd the CRTC, Canada’s Radio & Tele­vi­sion Com­mis­sion released a brand new pol­i­cy in regards to the gov­er­nance, man­date and def­i­n­i­tion of cam­pus & com­mu­ni­ty radio sta­tions in Cana­da. The cul­mi­na­tion of more than a year’s worth of hear­ings, reviews and sub­mis­sions, this new pol­i­cy aims to pro­vide a sim­pli­fied approach in regards to the licens­ing for cam­pus and com­mu­ni­ty sta­tions, includ­ing elim­i­na­tion of the cam­pus instruc­tion­al cat­e­go­ry, elim­i­na­tion of the dis­tinc­tion between Type A & Type B com­mu­ni­ty sta­tions, as well as revised pro­vi­sions for devel­op­men­tal stations. 

In addi­tion this new pol­i­cy has out­lined some major changes to Cana­di­an con­tent reg­u­la­tions for our sec­tor, increas­ing Can­Con require­ments from 35 to 40%, made changes in the require­ment for spo­ken word pro­gram­ming, and has final­ly addressed to issue of cat­e­go­riz­ing turntab­lism and sound col­lage under the exist­ing Can­Con sys­tem. Please take the time to review the entire pol­i­cy to ful­ly under­stand how it will affect some of your favorite local radio stations!
