The Community Radio Fund of Canada is pleased to launch the 8th round of funding for its long-awaited Radiometres program.

Radiometres aims to achieve three long-term results for the campus and community radio sector, namely the enhancement of local programming; support, training and retention of volunteers; and community participation. A variety of station's activities can be funded through the program, up to a maximum of $50,000, as long as these activities take place between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019 and meet at least one of the program results.

Eligible stations have until March 8, 2018, at 1:00 PM Eastern time to submit their application through the CRFC's new online application management platform (to change the language, please click on the right upper corner of your screen). 

Funding for this program is made possible by Canada's private broadcasters through Canadian Content Development (CCD), a funding mechanism established by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).These contributions play a vital role in the development of the community component of the Canadian broadcasting system.

Please read the 2018 Guidelines for complete program details.

On January 1, 2018, the government of Ontario passed legislation to increase the general minimum wage from $11.60 per hour to $14 per hour. We are aware that this might have an impact on funded projects in Ontario. However the CRFC will not increase the allocated funding to a recipient to compensate this decision. Instead the CRFC invites concerned recipients to contact their program officer directly. As always and upon discussion with each station, we are open to modifying approved budget expenditures to accommodate stations.

The CRFC is proud to present its 2016-17 annual report. The report and financial statements were unveiled at the CRFC's 10th Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on November 3, 2017, in Ottawa. During the AGM, CRFC members elected three new board directors: Boris Chassagne, Victoria Fenner and Brenda Grunau. Two members were also re-elected. They are Monique Levesque for a two-year term and Pierre-Louis Smith for a one-year term.

With a renewed team and a strategic planning in place, the CRFC is starting the year 2017-2018 on the right foot. We hope to remain a partner of choice for both radio stations and funders.
