41 Stations To Receive Funding Through The Community Radio Fund of Canada’s Radiometres Program

The Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) is proud to announce that 41 campus and community radio stations will receive funding through the 2023-2024 Radiometres program. 

Started in 2012, Radiometres supports a wide range of projects in the campus-community radio sector as stations develop engaging Canadian content. Specifically, the project aims to increase access to local news and information, support emerging music scenes, enhance essential technologies used to distribute programming, and strengthen overall capacity-building. 

Here are a few examples of the projects which will be funded this year: 

A 10-part podcast series by the University of Calgary’s radio station (CJSW) on the film and television industry, explores its role as a significant blockbuster hub. 

Thank you so much to the Community Radio Fund of Canada for their support of “Homesteads To Hollywood”, CJSW’s 2023 podcasting project.”  

“This documentary-style podcast will be covering the history of Calgary’s involvement with film and TV production, but also discuss all facets regarding current and future productions. This unique opportunity to obtain funding from the CRFC for this project will enable us to tell this story that documents an unsung facet of Calgary’s cultural history,” 

-CJSW Station Manager Adam Kamis

An expansion of a radio camp at the station in Manson’s Landing, B.C. (CKTZ) for youth ages 14-17 which will integrate experimental media arts and decolonization. 

A community-driven oral history project led by CKUT at McGill University on Montreal’s Afro-Caribbean community will see youth documenting the lived histories of their elders.

The CRFC wishes to acknowledge and thank commercial radio stations who, through their contributions to Canadian Content Development, provide the critical funding to make this program possible.
