Dear Mr. Grieve:

RE: Confirmation - Fulfillment of CLEC Requirements - Windsor and Kitchener, Ontario - TELUS Integrated Communications (2000) Inc.

This is in response to letters from TELUS Communications Inc. (TELUS) dated 20 June and 5 July 2001 in which it provided information that its subsidiary TELUS Integrated Communications (2000) Inc. (TIC) intends to offer local exchange services in the Windsor and Kitchener telephone exchanges and that it continues to satisfy the requirements imposed on Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) in Telecom Decision CRTC 97-8, Local Competition, 1 May 1997 (Decision 97-8)

Based on the statements made by TELUS in its letters, Commission staff considers that TIC meets the CLEC requirements set out by the Commission in Decision 97-8. The company can provide local exchange services as a CLEC in the above-noted exchange of Bell Canada's operating territory, provided it continues to meet those requirements and complies on an ongoing basis with the Canadian ownership and control regime set out in section 16 of the Telecommunications Act and in the associated regulations.

Yours sincerely,

Mike Cawood
Acting Director, Competition Implementation
