On March 10, the CRTC approved the application by Destination Osoyoos Development Society for a broadcasting licence to operate an English-language, low-power tourist FM radio programming undertaking. It would operate at 106.5 MHz (channel 293LP) with an effective radiated power of 16.5 watts. The applicant proposed to offer tourist information, consisting of pre-recorded messages relating to local and provincial safety conditions, weather and highway conditions, tourist attractions, events and community activities. The licence would expire 31 August 2012. 


CIRO-FM began broadcasting. 


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.
