This bilingual guide was produced in the summer of 2011 by David Meffe, the Regulatory Support Coordinator. His position was funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage's Young Canada Works program. It covers the basics of the Campus and Community Radio Policy CRTC 2010-499 in plain language, for use by station staff and their volunteers. Feel free to print, distribute and adapt for non-profit use, with acknowledgement. (Don't be fooled by the 2011-2012 on the cover, it continues to apply as long as the CRTC 2010-499 policy does.)

This bilingual guide was produced in the Spring of 2012 by Zoe Creighton of Kootenay Co-op Radio CJLY-FM in Nelson, BC as part of that station's joint project with the NCRA, called "Sounds Cooperative". Funded by the Cooperative Development Initiative, a program of the Government of Canada, it aimed to explore and build on the existing connections between co-operatives and campus and community radio stations.
