More than just a radio station, JAZZ.FM91 is Canada’s only broadcaster and registered not-for-profit charitable arts organization dedicated to e nriching the cultural, educational and community experience of their audience.

Providing youth programs and partnering with educational institutions, JAZZ.FM91 gives opportunities for thousands of promising young students and emerging artists to gain experience in music and broadcasting through workshops, internships, scholarships, and jazz-related content and programs. Jazzology, the Jazz 4 Kids concert series, theJAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band, and The Canadian Jazz Archive Online (www.canadianjazzarchive.orgare some of the JAZZ.FM91 programs and resources available to youth interested in expanding their knowledge of jazz.

The station has found a favoured place in the minds of a country that, because of its diversity and musical sophistication, has embraced the concept of an all-jazz format within a non-profit, educational context. The view of jazz as a small part of the world of music is outdated; in the past few years, as music recording sales have declined, the sale of jazz and blues recordings has grown by 45%. Jazz may be growing more mainstream, but also Canada’s mainstream is expanding its taste through jazz. Another indicator of the hold that jazz has: our website is one of the most visited jazz sites in the world and our iPhone app has been downloaded by almost 300,000 jazz fans around the world.

The variety and depth of the station’s programming make JAZZ.FM91 by far the most popular and innovative jazz station in Canada. JAZZ.FM91 is the only station broadcasting real jazz 24-7 in Canada.
