Updates for Canada (Latest info — Sept. 10, 2010)

Just thought I'd pass along a number of changes in Canada you might be interested in. These are all in the Industry Canada database.

For your list of current stations:
  • CKAL-DT Calgary (Ch. 49).

For your list of pending stations:

Approved DTV stations yet to come on the air
  • CFCN-DT(1) (Ch. 29) Calgary: Channel change and power increase.
  • CFEM-DT-1 (Ch. 20) Val D'Or
  • CFVS-DT-1 (Ch. 10) Rouyn-Noranda
  • CKRT-DT (Ch. 7) Rivière-du-Loup

Technical changes to existing DTV stations
  • CIVT-DT (Ch. 32) Vancouver — higher ERP for post-transition
  • CHAN-DT (Ch. 22) Vancouver — application to stay on Ch. 22 and use higher ERP for post-transition

Applications for new DTV stations to come on the air ASAP
  • CBRT-DT (Ch. 21) Calgary
  • CHNM-DT-1 (Ch. 29) Victoria

Applications for DTV stations to come on the air as of Aug. 31, 2011
  • CIHF-DT (Ch. 8) Halifax
  • CKMI-1-DT (Ch. 15) Montreal

Applications for analog stations to come on the air as of Aug. 31, 2011
  • CHWI-60 (Ch. 26) Windsor, Ont.

P.S. There are also plenty of DTV stations that are being rubber-stamped by the CRTC without public announcement. They are routinely added to the Industry Canada without notice.
