The Community Radio Fund of Canada is pleased to announce the launch of the seventh round of funding under the Radiometres
Radiometres is a results-based program built around three outcomes: The improvement of local programming (music and/or spoken word); Better training, supervision and retention of volunteers; and the increased community engagement. It allows licensed campus and community stations to plan and complete projects that contribute to Canadian content development.
“Since its inception, the CRFC has distributed over $ 11 million to the sector. This represents a tremendous investment not only for campus and community radio stations, but for the entire Canadian broadcasting system as well as for every citizen.” Says the CRFC president, Roger Ouellette.
Stations have until January 13, 2022 to submit an application for funding up to a maximum of $50,000. All campus and community radio stations with a valid CRTC license are eligible for this round of funding. For more information, please read the program guidelines. Stations will have to submit their application using the online contributions management system accessible at www.crfc-fcrc-prog.ca.
The funding for Radiometres is provided by Canada’s private radio broadcasters through their Canadian Content Development (CCD) contributions, a funding mechanism established by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission. These contributions will play an important part in the growth of the Canadian radio broadcasting system’s community sector.
The Community Radio Fund of Canada is the national not-for-profit funding entity responsible for the growth and sustainability of the community and campus radio sector. More than 180 radio stations across Canada make up the community-owned, volunteer-driven sector of Canadian radio broadcasting. The CRFC helps develop and strengthen this vital radio broadcasting sector to ensure Canadian communities have access to local and public radio.
