CKUR is a new radio station which will broadcast on 106.3 FM in Vancouver, British Columbia beginning within a year of its license being granted on June 14, 2017. The new station is a Class B Native station which will be aimed at an urban Indigenous audience.
According to the station's application to the CRTC, "the primary objective of the CKUR programming day is to reflect -- through information and entertainment -- the social, political, economic, and cultural concerns of the Aboriginal communities in Vancouver and throughout the Lower Mainland area. It is also intended to act as a cultural link between Vancouver First Nations peoples and their more remote home Nations." Its music programming will focus on highlighting Indigenous performers as well as blues, and Canadian-centric roots rock, and classic hits.
On June 14, 2017, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved 's application for a license to broadcast on the 106.3 FM frequency previously occupied by Aboriginal Voices Radio until that station had it license revoked in 2015.
Northern Native Broadcasting (Terrace) owns and operates the CFNR radio network based in Terrace, British Columbia with several dozen repeater stations throughout northern and central British Columbia.
