CJVD-FM, Le Nouveau FM de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Vaudreuil-Dorian
On July 6, the CRTC approved in part the application by Yves Sauvé, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated, for a broadcasting licence to operate a new FM radio station in Vaudreuil-Dorion. Within 90 days of the date of this decision, the applicant must submit an amendment to the application proposing the use of a frequency other than 106.3 MHz (channel 292A) that is acceptable both to the Commission and to the Department of Industry. Sauve proposed an effective radiated power of 1,100 watts. The new station would offer a music format composed mainly of retro hits targetting the 35 to 64 age group. At least 40% of the Category 2 (popular music) musical selections aired during the broadcast week and between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday would be Canadian selections, which exceed the percentages required by the Radio Regulations, 1986. The station would air more than 39 hours of spoken word programming during the broadcast week, of which at least 4 hours would be devoted to news. Local news would account for 50% of the total news aired during the broadcast day. The licence would expire 31 August 2013.
On May 2, the CRTC approved the application by Yves Sauvé, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated, to operate the new FM radio station in Vaudreuil-Dorion at 100.1 MHz (channel 261A), with an average effective radiated power of 550 watts.
CJVD-FM signed on the air September 29. The station serves Vaudreuil-Soulanges, the West Island communities of Montreal, Valleyfield and Beauharnois.

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.
