Please note: we are updating our website. We will be be adding our latest submissions soon, so check back. In the meantime, contact us if you have any questions or comments.

The NCRA has been very active representing campus and community radio in the area of copyright. As new tariffs are regularly proposed, the NCRA works with the Copyright Board of Canada to minimize the potential negative impact for stations. 

Note: In some cases, the NCRA has submitted jointly with the Alliance des radios communautaires du Canada (ARC du Canada) and the Association des radiodiffuseurs communautaires du Qu├ębec (ARCQ). Those are noted below.
