A transmitter for Canada's National Capital Region, CIRA-5 (1350 AM) in Gatineau, was on the air from 2012 to 2015. That transmitter received CRTC approval on September 23, 2009. In 2015, CIRA-5 was shutdown due to lack of money to keep that transmitter going. CIRA's FM transmitters remain unaffected with CIRA-5's shutdown. The 1350 AM frequency was a former frequency that was used by CHVR in Pembroke, Ontario, until it moved to FM in 1996.
