On March 5, the CRTC approved the application by Fabrique de la Paroisse de Saint-Mathieu for a broadcasting licence for a French-language religious FM radio programming undertaking at Montmagny, on the frequency 91.1 MHz, channel 216LP, with an effective radiated power of 0.6 watt. The licence would expire 31 August 2003. The applicant would broadcast a minimum of 20 hours of local programming per broadcast week. The undertaking would provide live broadcasts of masses, marriages, funerals, baptisms and other such religious ceremonies.
On October 2, the CRTC approved the application to amend the broadcasting licence for VF8014 by changing the frequency from 91.1 MHz, channel 216LP, to 91.5 MHz, channel 218LP.
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. VF8014’s broadcasting licence would expire on August 31, 2014.

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.
