In September, Canoe FM will celebrate 20 years of providing volunteer based not for profit community radio to Haliburton County. Community Radio is an essential piece of the Canadian landscape, and our many volunteers provide listeners with a diverse listening experience.
Canoe FM is a listener supported radio station. Our volunteers could be your friends, neighbours, family, or people standing with you in the grocery line. The many volunteers involved with Canoe FM take pleasure and pride in being able to bring you 20 years of Community Radio right here in Haliburton County.
Our volunteers are not your regular, mainstream radio hosts. They share their personalities and sometimes make little faux pas. Our volunteers are real.
Our volunteers create an eclectic mix of programming, a little something for everyone. Canoe volunteers showcase local and Canadian music and artists, they love promoting events and cultural activities. Ensuring that our listeners are connected and informed is a number one priority.
At Canoe, we are so thankful for all the outstanding volunteers that give so much of their time and energy to their volunteer positions. Our volunteers excel in the services that they provide. This station would not be the respected station it is, if it weren’t for the volunteers.
Canoe FM is your voice – your community – your station, and we tip our hat to our Canoe FM volunteers … thank you. Here’s to another 20 years! It’s an honour and a privilege to work with these volunteers.
