available on the CRFC's website.
"The CRFC had a highly successful first year in running these two programs,"
says CRFC President Ian Pringle. "Last year we gave out nearly $160,000 to
the sector. The initiatives we funded were as diverse as the stations
themselves, but in all cases, the end result was that we helped the stations
better serve their communities."
Both of these programs are made possible by a financial partnership with
Astral Media Radio through a CRTC contribution mechanism totalling $1.4
million over seven years. "We appreciate this partnership with Astral Media.
The CRFC looks forward to working with other partners to help build a
stronger community media sector in Canada," says Pringle. As the CRFC is
certified as an eligible recipient of Canadian content development (CCD)
contributions, it is open to work with all of Canada's private broadcasters.
