JOB POSTING

Program Assistant position available this summer!

The Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) is seeking a fully bilingual (English/French) Program assistant for the summer. This is a full-time (37.5 hours/week) 12 weeks student position, with a salary of $ 16/hour, running approximately from Monday, June 4th through to Friday, August 24, 2018. Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter and resumé clearly stating for what position they are applying, by April 20, 2018.

The Community Radio Fund of Canada is happy to release its first online training session. This one-hour training will provide campus and community radio stations with tips on how to frame a project idea and write a successful funding application under the Radiometres program. Enjoy!

 

On February 27, the CRFC will be holding a training session in order to help stations prepare their Radiometres funding application. As places are limited, we invite stations to book their seat as soon as possible by emailing Marie-Ève Laramée-Gauvreau, Program Director. Please take note that the presentation will also be made available to all on our Website on March 2nd. 

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

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.
