About the NCRA/ANREC

See for yourself: community voices are powerful.

Founded in 1986, the National Campus and Community Radio Association/l’Association nationale des radios étudiantes et communautaires is committed to volunteer-driven, community-oriented radio across Canada. 

Our goals are to ensure stability and support for individual stations and the long-term growth and effectiveness of the sector.
We promote public education about community media and help represent community radio to government and other agencies.

The NCRA/ANREC also provides a forum for people to share their skills, ideas and passion. Listen local, think national and get involved! The power is yours.
