About

 

Formed in 1998 as a merger between CRSG and CFLI, two former stations, CJLO is Concordia University's one and only radio station. 100% non-profit, and run almost entirely by volunteers, the station is located in the heart of the Loyola campus in the NDG borough of Montreal.

Our on-air personalities are the backbone of the station and there are over eighty DJ's spinning for your listening pleasure. Whether you are interested in Rock, Alt, Hip-Hop, RPM, Punk, Metal, Jazz, Blues, World, Country or Talk and Sports, CJLO has something for you, and is always looking for more on air talent.

From early 2003, CJLO has been streaming 7 days a week and in 2008 the station began broadcasting on 1690 AM throughout the Montreal area with 1000 watts of power. Our tower and transmitter are located in Lachine and we can be heard as far as Ottawa and Burlington, Vermont!

Governance & Constitution

CJLO is governed by the Concordia Student Broadcasting Corporation (CSBC). The CSBC is made up of seven directors who sit for two year terms and who are elected at an annual general meeting. The board is structured as follows:

  • One Concordia Student Member
  • One CJLO Representative who is also a Concordia Student
  • One Concordia Faculty Member
  • One Community Member
  • Two CJLO Representatives
  • One CUARC Representative

For more information about the CSBC, audited financial reports, CSBC by-laws and to apply to become a CSBC member if you are a Concordia student and wish to vote at AGMs or run for a position please visit the Concordia Student Broadcasting Corporation (CSBC) online.

CJLO's mandate is to promote local and lesser known artists and to provide hands-on radio and sound recording training to Concordia Students & Community Members. CJLO is licensed by, and follows the regulations of, the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission.

The majority of CJLO's funding comes from Concordia students. CJLO receives a 34 cent per credit, per semester fee levy from Concordia undergraduate students. A small amount of funding comes from paid advertising, fundraising and grants for special projects.

If for whatever reason you do not feel that your student fees should go towards supporting independent campus media, CJLO fully adheres to an opt-out policy where-by students can make an appointment during the two weeks each semester following the final course drop date to bring in their finalized course schedule and be reimbursed the student fees paid to CJLO. Students must come in person with valid student ID and updated transcript to be reimbursed. *Due to the pandemic we are accepting email online opt-outs during the designated opt-out period.
