Canada Releases 9-1-1 Report, Requests Comment (10/15/13)
Tuesday, October 15, 2013 | Comments

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) released a report on 9-1-1 services and invited Canadians to share their views on its findings and recommendations. The commission asked Canadians to identify and prioritize the matters within its jurisdiction that should be addressed regarding 9-1-1 services in Canada.

In December 2012, the CRTC appointed then-Commissioner Timothy Denton to conduct research on 9-1-1 services in light of the telecommunications system’s evolution to next-generation networks based on IP. Denton consulted numerous experts in Canada and abroad and examined comments from the public. That report, “A Report on Matters Related to Emergency 9-1-1 Services” from July 5 is available at

The CRTC Three-Year Plan 2013 – 2016 outlines the key activities that the commission expects to carry out during that period, and one of the planned activities is a review of the regulatory framework for next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) services. The objective of the review will be to develop the policy and regulatory framework for NG 9-1-1 services needed to meet the evolving public-safety needs of Canadians.

The full CRTC notice of consultation is available here. The deadline for submission of interventions is Nov. 25.
