What is the Mohawk College Radio Corporation?

The Mohawk College Radio Corporation is the legal entity that was granted the broadcast license by the CRTC. Every full time fee-paying student at Mohawk College is a regular member of this corporation. A board of directors runs the Corporation.

The Board shall comprise 9 Directors, and a chair, usually a media professional from the community at large, who shall be appointed by the other directors.  Board composition is made up of the following:

  • the Associate Dean, Media and Entertainment of Mohawk College
  • 2 members of the faculty of Media and Entertainment of Mohawk College or their designates from within the faculty of Media and Entertainment
  • 3 members of the student body from the Media and Entertainment Department who have been nominated by their fellow students
  • 3 members of the community volunteer base who have been nominated by the Officer of the Corporation

This group meets whenever necessary (usually twice a year) to plan to oversee items of an administrative nature and to offer comments and/or advice regarding long term strategies for the growth and development of the radio station so that anyone who participates, whether they are a student in the Media and Entertainment Department of Mohawk College, someone in a totally unrelated course of study, or a volunteer from the community will find the experience worthwhile.

The station is an asset of Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology in Hamilton Ontario, which also funds the station.
