The Commission announces that it has received an application for a broadcasting licence to carry on a television programming undertaking to provide a television service to serve the Niagara region.

It should be noted that, in making this call, the Commission has not reached any conclusion with respect to the licensing of any service at this time.

Applicants will be required to provide evidence giving clear indication that there is a demand and a market for the station and the proposed service. Without restricting the scope of the issues to be considered, the following should be addressed:

2.  The expected audience of the proposed service.

3.  The proposed expenditures and the means by which the applicant will promote the development of Canadian talent, including local and regional talent.

4.  An analysis of the markets involved and potential advertising revenues, taking into account the results of any survey undertaken supporting the estimates.

5.  An indication of possible shared investment or co-operative program buying arrangements with Canadian or foreign broadcasters.

6.  Evidence as to the availability of financial resources consistent with the requirements established in the financial projections of the applicant's business plan. For the convenience of applicants, the Commission has available upon request, a document entitled Commission Policy Regarding Documentary Evidence to Confirm the Availability of Financing.

The Commission also reminds applicants that they must comply with the eligibility requirements set out in the Direction to the CRTC (Ineligibility of Non-Canadians), SOR/97-192, dated 8 April 1997, as amended by SOR/98-1268, dated 15 July 1998 and the Direction to the CRTC (Ineligibility to Hold Broadcasting Licences), SOR/85-627, dated 27 June 1985, as amended by SOR/97-231, dated 22 April 1997.

The Commission will announce at a later date the public process for considering applications and where they may be examined by the public. As part of that process, the public will be given the opportunity to comment on any application by submitting written intervention(s) to the CRTC.
