On March 8, the CRTC approved the application by Fabrique de la Paroisse de Saint-Gérard for a broadcasting licence to operate a French-language low-power religious (church) FM radio programming undertaking in Weedon. The new station would operate at 98.5 MHz (channel 253LP) with an effective radiated power of 1.2 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -2.6 metres1). The new station would broadcast 2.5 hours of local programming during each broadcast week. The station would provide live broadcasts of masses, weddings, funerals, baptisms and other such religious celebrations. The licence would expire 31 August 2019.

VF8027 began broadcasting.

On November 21, the CRTC set out an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided programming that was derived solely from houses of worship. The exemption order went into effect immediately. Licensees of radio programming undertakings that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences. VF8027's broadcasting licence would expire on August 31, 2014.
