Dear Mr. Brazeau:

Re:  Part VII application by Shaw Cablesystems Limited seeking to review and vary Telecom Decision CRTC 2009-462

On 22 January 2010, the Commission received a Part VII application by Shaw Cablesystems Limited.

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 whether the application is considered to be a Type 1 or Type 2 application, and the applicable service standard.

Commission staff has assessed the above application and considers it to be a Type 1 application.  Accordingly, it is expected that the Commission will issue interim or final determinations within 4 months of the close-of-record.

Yours sincerely,

Original signed by

Mario Bertrand

Director, Competition Implementation and Technology
