ORDER

2012-573 October 17, 2012

Broadcasting licence fees — Part Ⅱ

  1. The Broadcasting Licence Fee Regulations, 1997, SOR/97-144, as amended by SOR/2010-157 dated July 7, 2010 (the Regulations), provide for the payment of a Part Ⅱ licence fee by certain licensed broadcasting undertakings. The revised Regulations were announced by the Commission in Amendments to the Broadcasting Licence Fee Regulations, 1997, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2010-476, July 14, 2010 (Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2010-476).
  2. Subsections 11(1) and 11(2) of the Regulations set out the components for the calculation of the Part Ⅱ licence fees. As per these sections of the Regulations, the total annual amount to be assessed by the Commission is the lesser of the following:
    • (a) $100,000,000 which, starting in 2011, is adjusted annually on a compound basis in accordance with the percentage increase or decrease, as the case may be, to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the calendar year prior to the year of the adjustment. The CPI is the annual average all-items CPI for Canada (not seasonally adjusted) that is published by Statistics Canada. As noted in Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2010-476, the Commission will use the CPI set out in Statistics Canada Catalogue No. 62-001-XWE, Table 5, CANSIM vector number v41690973. Part Ⅱ licence fees assessed in 2011 totalled $101,800,000. For 2011, the annual average CPI was 2.9%. Thus, the adjusted value of this component for 2012 is $104,752,200.

    • (b) 1.365% multiplied by the aggregate fee revenues for the return year terminating during the previous calendar year of all licensees whose fee revenues exceed the applicable exemption levels, less the aggregate exemption level for all those licensees for that return year (i.e. $11.855 billion). In 2012 this amounts to $161,819,385.
  3. Pursuant to subsection 11(3) of the Regulations, the Commission announces in the public notice that the total amount of Part Ⅱ licence fees to be assessed by the Commission in 2012 is $104,752,200, which is the lesser of the two amounts referred to in paragraph 2 above.
