Canada's federal broadcast regulator says it will allow some advertising on CBC's secondary radio French and English networks.
The change is included in the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission's decision to renew the CBC's licence, for both French and English-language television and radio stations, for the next five years.
The CBC had asked to be allowed unlimited advertising space on Radio 2, and its French-language equivalent Espace Musique, during the fourth year of the licence term.
The regulator instead gave a three-year window for advertising on the networks, on the condition that it not exceed more than four minutes per broadcast hour.
