Bell Canada is to notify the Commission that the customer has selected Bell Canada as the carrier and the company is to advise the Commission of the outcome of the selection process as soon as possible. If Bell Canada is selected, the company is directed to file with the Commission, within two business days of the date of the above notification, a hard copy of the application for the public examination room at the Commission's headquarters in Gatineau, and an electronic version for the Commission's web site.

  Secretary General
1 An ex parte application, is an application that has been filed with the Commission without notice to the public and, as such, is not placed on the public record when initially filed. An ex parte decision is one in which the Commission disposes of an application solely on the basis of the applicant's submissions. Subsection 61(3) of the Telecommunications Act allows the Commission to make an ex parte decision where it considers that the circumstances of the case justify it. In Review of regulatory framework, Telecom Decision CRTC 94-19, 16 September 1994, the Commission set out several considerations to be balanced in any determination to permit ex parte tariff filings, including the public interest in the effective operation of the competitive marketplace and the public interest in an open regulatory process.
