Telecom Order CRTC 2005-119

  Ottawa, 29 March 2005

Vidéotron Télécom ltée

  Reference: Tariff Notice 14

9-1-1 Emergency Reporting Service


The Commission received an application by Vidéotron Télécom ltée (VTL), dated 21 February 2005, for approval of item 600, VTL 9-1-1 Emergency Reporting Service (ERS), under Part F of its General Tariff of Interconnection.


The Commission received no comments with respect to the application.


The Commission notes that the VTL 9-1-1 Emergency Reporting Service tariff provisions are similar to those found in other approved competitive local exchange carrier tariffs. Moreover, in the absence of a signed agreement, VTL could now rely on the tariff to define its relationship with a municipality in terms of ERS.


However, the Commission notes that the English version of item 600.5.1(4) should read as follows:

4. The characteristics and reliability of the 9-1-1 service provided by the 9-1-1 Service Provider to the extent that VTL's participation in the provision of 9-1-1 ERS is dependent on the 9-1-1 service provided by the 9-1-1 Service Provider.


The Commission approves subject to the above change VTL's application. The revisions take effect as of the date of this Order.


VTL is to issue revised tariff pages forthwith to reflect this change.
