      I. INTRODUCTION Year by year, more of the riches of the Northland are exploited for the benefit of Canadians. More and more, the silence of the wilderness is being filled [...]
      The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) Northern Service, founded in 1958, preserved the economic, political, military, social, and cultural geographies of mid-twentieth-century northern development. The public broadcaster only reluctantly expanded northward, building upon already established shortwave services and ceding to requests for programming from a few, far-flung radio stations operated by the armed forces, civilian volunteers, and mining companies. Though these radio stations were never enough of a priority to receive the support they needed to most effectively serve their small, isolated audiences, they still held symbolic significance for the CBC, representing a means by which to establish its claim to the country's northernmost airwaves and thereby secure control over broadcasting in Canada. Keywords: The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) Northern Service; Northwest Territories and Yukon Radio System; United States Armed Forces Radio Service; Canadian North; Canadian Forces Resume analytique : Le Service du Nord de la Societe Radio-Canada (sue), fonde en 1958, protegea les frontieres economiques, politiques, militaires, sociales et culturelles de Tamenagement du nord au milieu du vingtieme siecle. La station de radio publique accepta seulement a contrecoeur de s'etendre vers le nord, se batissant a partir de services a ondes courtes deja etablis et consentant aux requetes de programmation de plusieurs stations de radio eloignees, exploitees par les forces armees, par des benevoles civils et par des compagnies minieres. Quoique ces stations de radio ne furent jamais une priorite pour recueillir Tappui dont ils avaient besoin pour desservir d'une maniere la plus efficace leur petit nombre d'auditeurs isoles, elles retinrent tout de meme une portee symbolique pour la SRC, representant un moyen par lequel elle pouvait eriger leur revendication aux ondes les plus au nord du pays et par le fait meme obtenir le controle de l'air au Canada. Mots-cles : Le Service du Nord de la Societe Radio-Canada (SRC); systeme de radio des Territoires du Nord-Ouest et du Yukon; Service de radio des forces armees americaines; Grand Nord canadien; Forces armees canadiennes
