Annual Returns: compliance is delicious!

This year, all 74 NCRA members that were required to submit an Annual Return to the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) did so on time!

We believe this reaches beyond stations filling out forms and instead shows our members' larger commitment to regulatory compliance and the responsibilities all broadcasters have in using the public airwaves.

Annual Returns track financial information, alcohol advertising and, for campus and community radio stations, the number of volunteers and volunteer hours worked in the past year, among other things. The data from the Annual Returns are compiled in the CRTC's Communications Monitoring Report on Canadian broadcasting.

Congrats to our members for this work and for all the work behind the forms that they do all year!
