Dear Madam, Sir:


Re: Expanded Local Calling Area Between
       Black River Matheson and Ramore


On 16 December 2008, the Commission received a Part VII application by NortherTel Limited Partnership.


In Service standards for the disposition of telecommunications applications, Telecom Circular CRTC 2006-11, 7 December 2006, the Commission stated that it would categorize Part VII applications into two types: Type 1 applications that generally do not involve multiple parties or raise significant policy issues and Type 2 applications that do involve multiple parties and/or raise significant policy issues


The Commission also adopted the following service standards for Part VII applications:

The Commission stated that it would inform applicants, by letter, within 10 days of the end of the comment period for applications, whether the application is considered to be a Type 1 or Type 2 application, and of the applicable service standard.


Commission staff has assessed the above application and considers it to be a Type 1 application. Accordingly, the Commission expects to issue an interim or final determination within 4 months of the close-of-record.


Yours sincerely,


Original signed by


Suzanne Bédard
Senior Manager, Tariffs
