CIAJ-FM, Aboriginal Christian, Prince Rupert
Aboriginal Christian Voice Network
|CIAJ-FM||2000||100.7||26.5||Aboriginal Christian Voice Network|
On October 18, the CRTC approved application by the Christian Family Inspirational Radio Ministries to operate a specialty FM radio programming undertaking at Prince Rupert on 100.7 MHz non-directional, with an effective radiated power of 26.5 watts. The station was to feature predominantly Christian music along with spoken word religious programming. It was stipulated that it would operate as a non-profit, non-commercial station with revenues being generated through listener pledges.
Call letters CIAJ-FM were assigned by Industry Canada and the station identified as “New Life FM”.
When the licence was renewed by the CRTC on October 26, it was noted that the Christian Family Inspirational Radio Ministries had become the Aboriginal Christian Voice Network.
The Aboriginal Christian Voice Network voluntarily surrendered its license for Christian station 100.7 CIAJ. At an October 11 board meeting, low interest and lack of support from local churches and the community were cited as the reasons behind the request for revocation (CRTC approved on November 17).

Effective September 1st 2019, we will only be adding new material to these station histories in exceptional circumstances. Our intent to chronicle the early days of these radio and television stations has been achieved, and many new sources and technologies, from the CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
