Bill C-43, the Economic Action Plan Act, No. 2, recently received Royal Assent. Some of the amendments adopted by Parliament grant new tools and responsibilities to the CRTC.


In particular, the CRTC can now issue monetary penalties to any company or person that violates the Telecommunications Act as well as related CRTC decisions or regulations. Monetary penalties are an addition to our toolkit. They will promote compliance with telecommunications laws and regulations. This will ensure Canadians have access to a world-class communication system—one in which there is sustainable competition and a choice of innovative content and services.

Monetary penalties also give the CRTC greater flexibility to tailor its enforcement approach to each situation and to the facts before it. In some cases, a monetary penalty might be the right approach. We will be providing further guidance in the coming weeks on how and when the CRTC intends to use this new power.

Changes to the Telecommunications Act and Broadcasting Act, under Bill C-43, have also prohibited providers from charging customers a fee to receive paper bills for wireless, Internet, telephone and television services. This includes undertakings that the CRTC has exempted from holding a broadcasting licence.

We are, however, conscious that some service providers may need to update their billing systems to automatically remove these charges. In the meantime, the Commission will consider operators to be in compliance if they manually make adjustments to customer bills in the earliest available billing cycle, through rebates or otherwise, thus reversing charges for paper bills. We encourage providers to work proactively with their customers to ensure the most efficient transition to implement this new legislative requirement.

The CRTC enhances the protection of Canadian’s privacy by rendering the National Do Not Call List (DNCL) permanent‏


The CRTC enhances the protection of Canadian's privacy by 
rendering the National Do Not Call List (DNCL) permanent
 
June 25, 2014 – Ottawa-Gatineau
 
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)
today announced that the registration of telecommunications numbers on the
National Do Not Call List (DNCL) will now be permanent.
 
Initially, number registrations with the National DNCL were for a set
amount of time, after which Canadians would have had to re-register their
numbers. This change enhances the CRTC’s ability to protect the privacy of
Canadians from unwanted telemarketing calls. Canadians can, at any time,
check the National DNCL to find out if their number is on the List and, if
they wish, have it removed.
 
The CRTC would like to remind telecommunications companies of the
importance of their role in maintaining the integrity of the National DNCL
and encourages the industry to keep working with the CRTC Interconnection
Steering Committee (CISC) to find an economic and viable mechanism to
remove from the List disconnected and reassigned numbers.
 
Over 12 million numbers are currently registered and, on average, 1,200
new numbers are still being added every day. The CRTC is continuing to
enhance its monitoring in order to ensure that all telemarketers follow
the rules. Since the creation of the National DNCL in 2008, the CRTC has
conducted 1,200 investigations and has imposed almost $4 million in
administrative monetary penalties, which are paid to the Receiver General
for Canada.
 
Quick facts
 
- The CRTC is improving the National DNCL by making registration
permanent.
- Canadians can remove their number from the National DNCL at any time.
- The CRTC reminds telecommunications companies of the importance of their
role in maintaining the integrity of the National DNCL.
- The CRTC is continuing to enhance its monitoring in order to ensure that
all telemarketers follow the rules.
 
Quote
"The National DNCL was created to respect the wishes of Canadians who do
not want to receive any more telemarketing calls. It therefore makes sense
that registration be made permanent in order to spare Canadians the
inconvenience of having to re-register their number on the List. We are
pursuing our efforts to ensure that telemarketers respect the wishes of
Canadians.”
- Jean-Pierre Blais, CRTC Chairman

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


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.

Quick Facts
• 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. 
• 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.
