Amended proceeding to consider a model Municipal Access Agreement

File number: 8690-C12-201113125

In this notice, the Commission approves a request from the CISC ad hoc working group developing a model Municipal Access Agreement to file its report by 28 June 2013.


1. In Telecom Notice of Consultation 2011-614-1, the Commission requested that the CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee (CISC)[1] establish an ad hoc working group to develop a model Municipal Access Agreement (MAA). The Commission also requested that this working group report back to the Commission within 180 days of the date of Telecom Notice of Consultation 2011-614-1 (i.e. by 7 August 2012).

2. In Telecom Notice of Consultation 2011-614-3, the Commission amended the reporting deadline to 15 April 2013, in response to a request from the ad hoc working group, called the CISC Model Municipal Access Agreement Working Group (MAWG).

3. In a letter dated 26 March 2013, the chair of the CISC MAWG requested an extension of the reporting deadline to 28 June 2013. The letter stated that additional time would allow the CISC MAWG to continue to negotiate and develop a broader consensus on the model MAA.

Amended procedure

4. The Commission has examined the CISC MAWG’s request and considers that it is reasonable in view of the progress that has been made to date. Therefore, the reporting deadline set out in Telecom Notice of Consultation 2011-614-3 is amended, and the CISC MAWG is to report back to the Commission by 28 June 2013.
