On October 14, the CRTC approved an application by Aupe Cultural Enhancement Society to operate a Type B Native FM radio station in Campbell River, British Columbia. The station would operate at 100.7 MHz with an average effective radiated power of 3,800 watts (maximum ERP of 8,000 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 277 metres). Aupe proposed to broadcast 126 hours of programming each broadcast week. Approximately 20 hours would be devoted to spoken-word programming (community news, sports, weather, traffic and other community information in the English and Comox languages) and 106 hours would be devoted to musical content. The station would broadcast no less than 20 hours of station-produced programming each broadcast week, with a minimum of six hours per broadcast week in the Comox language. The applicant added that the station would also broadcast a regular two-minute “Community Focus” program featuring a mix of cultural, educational, political and current affairs programming. The licence would expire 31 August 2023.


In July, the CRTC gave Aube Cultural Entertainment Society an extension to October 14, 2020 to get its new station on the air. Aube stated it hoped to have the station on the air in the fall of 2019 but had applied for the extension in case technical issues were encountered.

In the fall, CKCC Raven FM signed on the air with a New Country format.
