On March 27, the CRTC approved the application by Cathe Wagg for a new low-power English-language FM radio station at Whistler. The applicant proposed a tourist information service that would provide general information relating to tourist sites and events in Whistler. Programming would consist of one hour of recorded messages repeated continually over a 24-hour period. The service would operate on a year-round basis. The licence would expire August 31, 2007. The new station would operate on the frequency 88.7 MHz, channel 204LP, with an effective radiated power of 50 watts.

2007

On January 30, the CRTC approved the application by Four Senses Entertainment Inc. for authority to acquire the assets of the low-power, English-language, tourist information radio programming undertaking CFTW-FM Whistler. The Commission denied the applicant's request to amend the licence in order to expand the programming services to offer "entertaining spoken word" programming. 
 

2013

On November 21, the CRTC issued an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided tourist information. It came into effect immediately. Licensees of radio stations that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences. CFTW's licence was to expire August 31, 
2014.
