Fall 2018: CITE-FM, a new radio station is now broadcasting in French in Edmonton, Alberta! In the 2016 Census of Population conducted by Statistics Canada, the Edmonton metropolitain area (CMA) recorded a francophone population of almost 30 000. Not to mention the 95 000 bilinguals of the area. No wonder this new French station was much-awaited! That’s why CITE-FM’s mission is to meet francophones specific needs as well as their interest for French music, especially Western Canadians musicians. Local news are part of the deal, of course, with programs specifically oriented towards the Franco-Albertans. Isn’t that what we expect from a radio station involved in its community?

Edmonton is the major economic centre for northern and central Alberta and a major centre for the oil and gas industry. Edmonton traditionally has been a hub for Albertan petrochemical industries. Supply and service industries drive the energy extraction engine, while research develops new technologies and supports expanded value-added processing of Alberta’s massive oil, gas, and oil sands reserves. These are reported to be the second-largest in the world, after Saudi Arabia.
