National Campus and Community Radio Association (Canada)

Campus radio was born in Canada in 1922 on the campus of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. Begun as an electrical engineering experiment, this station, CFRC, remained Canada's only licensed campus station until CJUS-FM at the University of Saskatchewan was licensed in 1963.

The National Campus and Community Radio Association is a not-for-profit group of organizations and individuals committed to volunteer-driven, non-profit, 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 also provides a forum for people to share their skills, ideas and passion.

NCRA membership is open to: community-based and instructional campus stations; English, French and native community stations; and other supportive businesses and individuals.
