The CRTC does have a policy which makes it easier for AM stations to
move to FM.  It's similar to the process in the US whereby certain
changes to FM allotments are not subject to competing applications:
if a Canadian AM station wants to move to FM, and it meets certain
other conditions, the CRTC will not entertain other applications for
the same channel, thereby avoiding a long and potentially costly
competitive hearing process.
