On March 17, the CRTC approved an application by Fort McKay Radio Society to operate a low-power, English- and Aboriginal-language  Type B Native  FM radio station in Fort  McKay. The station would operate at 106.3 MHz (channel 292 LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 6.6 metres). It would broadcast each broadcast week 34 hours of spoken-word programming, 92 hours of musical content, a minimum of 116 hours devoted to local (station-produced) programming and a  total of 26 hours devoted to Aboriginal-language programming (Cree/Dene). The station would also offer programming relating to the culture and heritage of the First Nation community as well as the promotion of health, wellness and addictions services in the Fort McKay region. The music programming would feature a mix of pop, rock, dance, country and Aboriginal music. 15% of the music broadcast would be performed or composed by Aboriginal talent.
