Parties who cannot attend the oral hearing at either of the locations may participate from the Commission's regional offices via videoconferencing.

A list of the Commission's regional offices is provided in Telecom Notice of Consultation 2010-43.


The Commission will make every effort to accommodate each party's preferred hearing location. However, in order to ensure the orderly conduct of the oral hearing, some parties may be requested to participate at a specific location.


The Commission will issue, as soon as possible, the list of parties who have filed a notice of intention to participate at the oral hearing. The list will set out the location at which each party will be heard and their order of appearance.


Persons requiring communications support such as assistive listening devices and sign language interpretation are requested to inform the Commission at least twenty (20) days before the commencement of the oral hearing so that the necessary arrangements can be made.


An organization and conduct letter, providing directions on procedure with respect to the oral hearing, including the scope of the issues to be examined, will be issued prior to the commencement of the oral hearing. All issues identified in the organization and conduct letter will be examined at both oral hearing locations.
