Telecom Order CRTC 2004-365

Ottawa, 1 November 2004

La Corporation de Téléphone de La Baie

  Reference: Tariff Notice 29

Access facilities - Compensation per call


On 14 September 2004, the Commission received an application by La Corporation de Téléphone de La Baie (La Baie), dated 9 September 2004, to introduce item 2.3.1, Compensation per call, to its General Tariff.


La Baie proposed to introduce a $0.2382 compensation per call charge for toll-free calls made from a public or semi-public payphone, to be billed to the long distance service provider.


La Baie indicated that its proposed rate is similar to the rate approved by the Commission for TELUS Communications (Québec) Inc. (TCQ), now TELUS Communications Inc., and requested that the Commission treat its proposal pursuant to paragraph 34 of Regulatory framework for the small incumbent telephone companies, Decision CRTC 2001-756, 14 December 2001 (Decision 2001-756).


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


In Decision 2001-756, the Commission determined that the fourth service basket comprises all other services (not in baskets 1, 2 and 3) offered by the small incumbent local exchange carriers, such as optional services, multi-element service categories, special facilities tariffs and competitor access tariffs. The Commission also determined that: (a) rates for these services would be permitted to increase up to an already approved rate for the same service; (b) tariff applications may be submitted at any time and should reference when and where the Commission approved the rate; and (c) for rate increases that go beyond an already approved rate, an economic study must accompany the application.


The Commission notes that the rate proposed by La Baie meets the requirements set out in Decision 2001-756 and is consistent with the rate approved by the Commission for TCQ in Implementation of price regulation for Télébec and TELUS Québec, Telecom Decision CRTC 2002-43, 31 July 2002.


The Commission approves La Baie's application. The revisions take effect as of the date of this Order.


La Baie is to issue revised tariff pages forthwith to reflect this change.
