1.         Paragraph 122 of Obligation to serve and other matters, Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2011-291, 3 May 2011 should read as follows (change highlighted in bold): 

122. In view of the above, the Commission determines that, effective 1 June 2011, in the regulated HCSAs of all large and small ILECs where subsidies have not yet been eliminated and monthly rates are below $30, these rates can be increased, as discussed below, to the lesser of $30 or the amount required to eliminate subsidy. The maximum allowable rate increases will be imputed for the calculation of the rate component, regardless of whether the ILEC actually increases its rates. For 2011, the imputed increases are to take effect no later than 1 August 2011, with subsidy calculations adjusted accordingly. For future years, all increases to the rate component for the purposes of subsidy calculation will be imputed as of 1 June. The increases to the rate components will be phased in over a period of three years (the transition period), in equal annual increments.
