Are you looking for a challenging job opportunity? The CRFC is currently seeking a bilingual Executive Director.

The Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) is an independent not-for-profit funding organization. Its mandate is to support licenced campus and community radio stations in their work as local broadcasters in communities across Canada.

The Executive Director is responsible for leading this work, taking direction from the Board of Directors. This includes managing CRFC operations, as well as the coordination and implementation of the Fund's development, communications, stakeholder relations and strategic plans.

This is a full-time (40-hour/week) position with a salary range of $65,000 to $80,000, commensurate with skills and experience.

The Board and staff of the Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) are sad to announce that Program Officer Josée Dallaire is leaving us — but happy that it’s because she has found a permanent position with another national not-for-profit organisation.

Josée started in November 2015 as a maternity leave replacement for Marie-Ève Laramée-Gauvreau, who will be returning in November to join Program Officer Aymone Agossou.

In the nine months since she began, Josée brought passion and professionalism to the position, drawing on her previous experience working for a grants and contributions program at the Department of Canadian Heritage.

The Board of Directors of the Community Radio Fund of Canada regrets to announce that Derek Stack, recently appointed Executive Director, is no longer with the organization. Details on the interim management of the CRFC are being put in place, and we will begin the process to identify a new Executive Director as soon as possible.

Since it was founded in 2007, the CRFC has distributed more than $10-Million to 127 different campus and community radio stations across Canada for over 440 projects.

Our funding 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 (CRTC). These contributions play an important part in the success of the Canadian radio broadcasting system's community sector.

The CRFC awards over $200,000 to 21 stations through its Youth on Air! program

The Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) is happy to announce the recipients of the most recent round of its Youth on Air! program. Over $200,000 was awarded to 21 campus and community radio stations that will hire interns this summer in order to offer them a unique and rewarding radio experience.

"After the program's success last year, we really wanted to bring back Youth on Air! It's incredible to see everything that the stations are able to accomplish with the extra resource, especially during the summer! It also allows the young interns to gain valuable experience. It's a win-win situation," says Roger Ouellette, president of the CRFC.

This summer, interns will be hired at radio stations from one coast of the country to the other. They will have the opportunity to go in the field, meet members of their community, and attend special events, shows or festivals. They will also produce documentaries, local newscasts or specialized shows all while gaining hands-on broadcasting skills.
