CRTC recognized for its creative and innovative work 
on behalf of Canadians

June 19, 2014 – Ottawa-Gatineau – Canadian Radio-television 
and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is
proud that its work is being recognized through the Public Service Awards
of Excellence. CRTC employees will be honoured at a ceremony this fall for
their creative and innovative work in the areas of Official Languages,
Employment Equity and Diversity, and Policy. 

CRTC employees will receive an award in the Official Languages category
for the high degree to which the use of English and French was promoted in
all aspects of the CBC/Radio-Canada licence renewal proceeding. Throughout
the proceeding, the CRTC instituted measures to ensure that all Canadians
could be heard in the language of their choice and to foster the full
participation of official language minority communities. These measures
set a new standard, which have been emulated in subsequent CRTC
proceedings.

The CRTC’s long-standing commitment to support the integration of
developmentally-challenged employees in the workplace will also be
recognized. Since 1991, the CRTC has welcomed individuals who live with
Down syndrome or other developmental disabilities and has fostered a
stable, fulfilling and accepting workplace in which their unique needs are
addressed and respected. The CRTC’s Developmentally-Challenged Employees
Steering Committee will receive the Employment Equity and Diversity award
for its management of this initiative. 

Finally, CRTC employees will receive an award in the Policy category in
recognition of how it engaged Canadians in new and innovative ways to
develop a code of conduct for wireless service providers. The CRTC made
extensive use of social media and other technologies to engage Canadians
and ensure the public’s views were included in the discussion at a public
hearing. The result was a code of conduct that addresses many of the
frustrations that Canadians shared with the CRTC and that contributes to a
dynamic marketplace.

The CRTC is proud of the work it is carrying out to ensure Canadian
citizens, creators and consumers are at the centre of a world-class
communication system.

The CRTC congratulates all of this year’s award nominees and recipients
for their outstanding contributions to improving the lives of Canadians.
