On January 10, the CRTC approved an application by Island Lake First Nations Radio Inc. for a broadcasting licence to operate a low-power, English- and Cree-language Type B Native FM radio programming undertaking in Island Lake. Island Lake First Nations Radio Inc. was a non-profit corporation controlled by its board of directors. The new station would operate on frequency 106.5 MHz (channel 293LP) with an effective radiated power of 33.3 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 15 metres). Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision were for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission reminded the applicant that it would have to select another frequency if the Department of Industry so required. Programming would consist of educational and music programs, which would include traditional music and showcase Aboriginal talent. The applicant proposed to broadcast a minimum of 35 hours of station-produced programming during each broadcast week, of which a minimum of 20 hours would be Cree-language programming. The licensee shall devote, in each broadcast week, no less than 35% of its musical selections from content category 2 (Popular Music) to Canadian musical selections broadcast in their entirety. The licence would expire August 31, 2017.
