Sectoral Initiatives

Since the year 2014-2015, the CRFC allocates a funding envelope to the three largest campus and community radio associations in Canada : the Alliance des radios communautaires du Canada (ARC du Canada), the Association des radiodiffuseurs communautaires du Québec (ARCQ), and the National Campus and Community Radio Association (NCRA). Collectively, these three associations represent the majority of the 180 campus and community stations that possess a valid campus or community broadcasting licence issued by the CRTC.

The CRFC provides support to the three associations so that they may provide specific services to their members. The funds are to be used to reinforce the capabilities of the sectors by helping stations coordinate their activities, train volunteers et employees, and create new musical and spoken word content. This funding allocation has allowed a majority of stations to receive professional coaching and supervision.
