Introduction of 8-1-1 service


The Commission received applications by Bell Canada and Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership (the Companies), dated 4 October 2006, to introduce General Tariff item 6003, 8-1-1 Service, as contemplated by the Commission in Alberta Health and Wellness' request for code 8-1-1 for non-urgent health teletriage services, Telecom Decision CRTC 2005-39, 6 July 2005. In their applications, the Companies also proposed modifications to item 7020, Bell Digital Voice Lite, and item 7025, Business IP Voice for Broadband, to include 8-1-1 with the other N-1-1 codes referenced in these tariff items.


In Telecom Order CRTC 2006-271, 13 October 2006, the Commission granted interim approval to the Companies' applications.


The Commission received no comments with respect to these applications.


In Access-independent VoIP services pursuant to Order in Council P.C. 2006-1314, Telecom Circular CRTC 2006-10, 16 November 2006, the Commission noted that Bell Canada General Tariff items 7020 and 7025 were no longer of any force or effect, and those services were forborne from regulation to the extent specified in the Order in Council.


In light of the above, the Commission approves on a final basis the Companies' applications, with the exception of the proposed modifications to items 7020 and 7025, for which no approval is required because these services are forborne from regulation.
