We are very pleased to announce that the early bird registration for the National Community Radio Conference in 2019 is now open! The conference will be taking place in Toronto at Ryerson University, June 4th, 5th and 6th. We are being co-hosted by the incredible team at CJRU 1280 AM. Don't forget that we will have a welcome party on the 3rd, and there will be a rally against the Ontario Student Choice Initiative on the 3rd or 7th (The Choice Initiative will likely make all ON campus station levies opt-in)

The NCRA/ANREC has been successful in securing a substantial grant from Employment and Social Development Canada. Our project 'Empowering Voices' is designed to achieve the following goals:
Provide targeted training to improve the preparedness of community radio stations to be confident in hiring and volunteering people with disabilities;
Update the community radio “Accessibility Handbook” to reflect new legal requirements and include robust information regarding hiring people with disabilities; and
Increase the number of people with disabilities working in the community radio sector by offering micro-grants to improve physical access.

The NCRA/ANREC is thrilled to announce that a key element of this grant is distributing $50,000 directly to stations for capital upgrades to their stations to improve accessibility!

About the NCRA/ANREC

See for yourself: community voices are powerful.

Founded in 1986, we help campus and community radio stations get and stay on-air. We help amplify under-represented voices. We foster and celebrate compelling local grassroots radio. And we bring stations together to share their skills, passions, and ideas.

As part of this work, we also represent community radio to the government, CRTC, and other agencies.

Listen local, think national and get involved! The power is yours.

We currently have 107 members and continue to grow. Our Mission
