I have some very exciting news. The NCRA is about to lead a nation-wide campaign to pressure major telecoms (Rogers, Bell, Telus etc) and manufacturers to turn on what is called an "fm chip", which is installed on most smartphones already but not active (some phones have this enabled already). These organizations want to keep these chips disabled because they make money off of data use, whereas the FM chips don’t require data.

Hello/Tansi/Salut/Yaw and in many more languages,

The Indigenous committee is putting together a zine about developing PSAs identifying traditional territories, per the action item on the Board’s strategic plan, which arose from the Open Space discussion at the 34th National Campus and Community Radio Conference (“NCRC”) this past June.

About the NCRA/ANREC

See for yourself: community voices are powerful.

Founded in 1986, we help campus and community radio stations get and stay on-air. We help amplify under-represented voices. We foster and celebrate compelling local grassroots radio. And we bring stations together to share their skills, passions and ideas.

As part of this work, we also represent community radio to the government, CRTC and other agencies.

Listen local, think national and get involved! The power is yours.

We currently have 95 members, and continue to grow.
