Louis Martel, representing a company to be incorporated, was given approval to operate an FM station on a frequency of 93.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 28,800 watts. The station would provide unique programming, organization and financing, and would be educational with information and programming, including credit courses, from educational institutions in the region. A non-profit organization, the station would be built by the Trois-Rivieres CEGEP (community college) and be financed by the sale of air time to the various educational organizations.


CFCQ-FM signed on the air.


On January 11, the CRTC renewed CFCQ-FM’s licence until September 30, 1985.


After being off the air for some 18 months, CFCQ returned to the air on March 16. The station was given CRTC permission to revise programming. CFCQ-FM would remain community oriented, with reduced educational content. 
CFCQ moved its studios from Trois-Rivières to Cap-de-la-Madeleine without CRTC   approval.


On March 20, for a long list of reasons, the CRTC denied Téléduc Inc’s. application to renew the licence for CFCQ-FM. The station was ordered to leave the air by March 31, the date its licence was to expire. The station had repeatedly failed to meet many of its programming commitments, had gone off the air for 18 months, delegated control of management and programming, and relocated the studios without approval.

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.
