On November 6, the CRTC approved the application by Fabrique Notre-Dame du Perpétuel-Secours for a broadcasting licence for a religious French-language FM radio programming undertaking at Sherbrooke, on the frequency 89.7 MHz, channel 209LP, with an effective radiated power of 0.6 watts. The licence would expire August 31, 2002. The applicant would broadcast 20 hours of local programming per broadcast week, providing live broadcasts of masses, marriages, funerals, baptisms and other such religious ceremonies.
On December 11, the CRTC approved the application by Fabrique Notre-Dame du Perpétuel-Secours to amend the broadcasting licence for CFPP-FM in order to change the frequency from 89.7 MHz (channel 209LP) to 88.1 MHz (channel 201LP).
On November 21, the CRTC set out an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided programming that was derived solely from houses of worship. The exemption order went into effect immediately. Licensees of radio programming undertakings that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences.
On March 10, the CRTC revoked CFPP-FM’s licence at the request of the licensee who proposed to continue operation as an exempt, unlicensed low-powered station (an exemption authorised for stations operated by local churches and other houses of worship).

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.
