On November 1, the CRTC approved the application by Corporation Médiatique Teuehikan, for a broadcasting licence for a Montagnais- and French-language FM radio programming undertaking at Mashteuiatsh (Pointe-Bleue), on the frequency 107.3 MHz, channel 297LP, with an effective radiated power of 50 watts. The Commission noted that the licensee would broadcast 72 hours per week of programming, of which 42 hours would be produced locally and 30 hours would originate from the Société de Communication Attikamekw Montagnais (SOCAM) network. Half of the programming would be in Montagnais and half in French. It was a condition of licence that the licensee broadcast no more than an average of 4 minutes of advertising per hour per day, with a maximum of 6 minutes in any given hour, in accordance with the native radio policy for Type B stations. This licence would expire on August 31, 1999. The licence term granted, while less than the maximum of seven years permitted by the Broadcasting Act, would enable the Commission to consider the next licence renewal of this undertaking in accordance with the Commission’s regional plan for Native radio undertakings across Canada and to better distribute the workload within the Commission.

On March 18, the licence for CHUK-FM was administratively renewed until August 31, 2000.


On June 15, the CRTC renewed the licence of CHUK-FM until August 31, 2008. In Public Notice CRTC 2001-70, the Commission introduced changes to conditions of licence for some native radio undertakings. As indicated in the notice, the Commission no longer imposed limits on the advertising broadcast by native radio stations and networks. However, it required that they broadcast a Canadian content level of at least 35% in popular (category 2) music. Consequently, it was a condition of licence that the licensee devote a minimum of 35% of all Category 2 musical selections broadcast, during each broadcast week, to Canadian selections. In Public Notice 2001-70, the Commission further encouraged native radio stations, that wished to broadcast wrap-around programming after their daily sign-off, to use programming from another native radio station or network.


On August 29, the CRTC renewed the licence of CHUK-FM until August 31, 2012.


On August 17, the CRTC administratively renewed the licence of CHUK-FM to August 31, 2013.
