NOTICE OF CONSULTATION

Call for comments on amendments to the Radio Regulations, 1986 relating to Canadian content development

The Commission calls for comments on proposed amendments to subsection 15(2) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 to implement changes to the administration of the Canadian content development policy. The Commission also calls for comments on the proposed definition for the Community Radio Fund of Canada.

The deadline for submission of comments is July 11, 2013.

(2) Subsection 15(2) of the Regulations is replaced by the following:

(2) Except as otherwise provided under a condition of its licence that refers expressly to this subsection and subject to subsection (3), an A.M. licensee, F.M. licensee or digital radio licensee that is licensed to operate a commercial or ethnic station shall, if the licensee’s total revenues are more than $1,250,000, contribute annually to eligible initiatives $1,000 plus one half of one percent of those revenues that are in excess of $1,250,000.

REGULATORY POLICIES

2013-292 June 18, 2013

Amendments to the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations to implement the exemption order applicable to Category B services that serve fewer than 200 000 subscribers and that operate under an approved nature of service

The Commission has amended the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations to implement the exemption order applicable to Category B services that serve fewer than 200 000 subscribers and that operate under an approved nature of service.

These amendments will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅱ, and will come into effect on the date of their registration. The amendments are set out in the appendix to this regulatory policy.

2013-297 June 21, 2013

Changes to the administration of the Canadian content development policy for commercial and ethnic radio

The Commission announces changes to the administration of the Canadian content development (CCD) policy for commercial and ethnic radio stations. Specifically, the Commission intends to amend the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) to eliminate the requirement that stations with less than $1,250,000 in revenues make basic CCD contributions. Today, the Commission has issued a notice of consultation calling for comments on the amendments. The change will not become effective and all current CCD requirements will remain in place until the amended Regulations come into effect at the end of the process initiated by that notice.

The Commission considers that this change will reduce the regulatory burden on the smallest stations, while maintaining funding for Canadian music and other creative initiatives through CCD contributions resulting from ownership transfer benefits, over-and-above contributions by newly licensed stations and basic CCD requirements for the largest stations.

The Commission also invites radio broadcasters to make greater use of their ability to seek advance guidance from Commission staff about new CCD initiatives. In addition, the Commission will enhance its Web page containing lists of projects that have qualified as eligible for CCD support.
