Radiometres is characterized by an outcome-based approach. It is designed to offer the funding that the stations need by being flexible enough to find a wide range of activities, but also maintains a focus on measuring success and progress for each project funded.

THE PROGRAM TARGETS THREE PRIORITIES:


CONTENT CREATION

This priority is intended for any project that aims to create musical and spoken word programming for your station.


SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

This priority is intended for any project aimed at improving the station’s ability to fulfill its mission through skills development.


DIGITAL INITIATIVES

This priority is intended for any project that involves the establishment or improvement of digital programming distribution systems.

These outcomes were chosen to reflect the aims of CRFC funding as well as the desired impact of funding awarded to the campus and community radio sector and the broader Canadian broadcasting system.

By targeting these outcomes over the long-term, the CRFC hopes to foster the development and sustainability of campus and community radios, and volunteer participation.

We are on the right track! To date, Radiometres has had a significant impact on the sector by allowing 124 stations to :

Produce over 34,790 hours of new local programming

Create 785 paid positions

Allow 2 079 volunteers to contribute, 3 871 new volunteers to be recruited, and training to be offered to 1 474 volunteers

Create 338 new partnerships with local community organizations and participate in 308 local event
