On April 25, the CRTC approved Paqtnkek Radio Society’s application for a broadcasting licence to operate a Type B Native English- and Indigenous-language FM radio station. The station would operate at 104.5 MHz with an effective radiated power of 50 watts and an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 8.5 metres. It would broadcast 126 hours of local programming each broadcast week, including at least five hours of programming in the Mi’kmaq language, five hours of news and five hours of spoken word programming. Music performed or composed by Indigenous artists would comprise up to 11% of the music broadcast. Paqtnkek also intended to broadcast community events (such as traditional celebrations and ceremonies), offer airtime to local artists and reach out to the community in order to tailor its programming to their interests. The licence would expire 31 August 2025.

In December, CFPQ 104.5 Rez-FM began on-air testing to the Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation.
