Public notice CRTC 2001-102

Ottawa, 28 September 2001

The Commission seeks comments from CLECs on the adoption of the model tariff 

Reference: 8657-C12-02/01


The Commission notes that, since the introduction of local competition, service providers that intend to be competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) have been required to file tariffs for the provision of interconnection services to other telecommunications service providers. The CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee's Tariff Ad-Hoc Working Group has developed a model tariff for CLECs that reflects the Commission's determinations to date with respect to the various tariff items that should be contained in a CLEC's General Tariff (the model tariff).


The model tariff is posted on the Commission's web site at and will be updated as Commission decisions that affect it are issued. Notification of changes will be sent to all CLECs.


On a preliminary basis, the Commission considers that the tariffs of the CLECs should be based on the model tariff.


The Commission intends to grant final approval to the General Tariffs of CLECs that adopt the rates, terms and conditions set out in the model tariff.


CLECs are hereby directed to show cause within 30 days as to why:

a) their respective General Tariffs should not be based on the model tariff and the rates, terms and conditions set out in the model tariff should not apply to them; and
b) the relevant rates, terms and conditions set out in the model tariff should not apply to them.

Submissions may be examined or will be made available promptly upon request at the Commission offices during normal business hours:
