On April 27, the CRTC approved the application for a licence for an English-and native-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Watson Lake on the frequency 99.9 MHz, channel 260, with an effective radiated power of 0.6 watts to broadcast locally-produced programming. The licence would expire August 31, 1991. This term would enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of other radio stations in the area.

On June 10, the CRTC approved the application to amend the licence for CHWA-FM Watson Lake, by changing the frequency from 99.9 MHz (channel 260) to 102.1 MHz (channel 271) and by increasing the effective radiated power from 0.6 watt to 5 watts.

On September 24, the CRTC approved the the application for authority to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CHWA-FM Watson Lake from Liard Broadcasting Society. The Commission issued a licence to Liard First Nation FM Society, expiring August 31, 2003. The licence term granted, while less than the maximum of seven years permitted under the Broadcasting Act, would enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence in accordance with the Commission's regional plan and to better distribute the workload within the Commission. The Commission also approved the applicant's proposal to amend the licence for CHWA-FM by adding a transmitter at Upper Liard, operating on the frequency 99.9 MHz, channel 260VLP, with an effective radiated power of 1 watt.
