Community Radio. What is it, Really?

Community and Campus Radio leads Canadian Culture.

These stations (members list) are as diverse as the communities that made them with programming offered in over 65 languages across the country! These are non-profit community-based stations and many participate in local projects and fundraising, constantly giving back every penny put in. Here is more information about a snapshot of our sector as of March 2023, our history, current membership, alumni and listening numbers. Are you looking to start a station? Click here!
