RE: 9-1-1 agreement between Telecommunications Xittel Inc. and CAUCA – closing file

Dear Mr. Leduc:

On 11 December 2012, the Commission received an application by Telecommunications Xittel Inc. (Xittel), under agreement number 1568-00, in which the company proposed a 9-1-1 agreement between XITTEL and Centrale des appels d’urgence Chaudière-Appalaches Inc. (CAUCA). The agreement in question describes terms and arrangements between Telecommunications Xittel Inc. and CAUCA, effective since 30 November 2011.

Commission staff notes that paragraph 22(2) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules of Procedure) sets out the information that applicants must include in their applications, and that paragraph 59 of the Rules of Procedure specifies the procedural requirements established for the approval of a tariff or an agreement. Further, paragraph 8 of the Rules of Procedure provides that the Commission may return an application or close a file that does not meet these requirements.

Commission staff also notes that CAUCA is a Public-Safety Answering Point (PSAP) providing 9-1-1 emergency call services. Commission staff notes that, pursuant to Commission’s CLEC Obligations , in the event that a CLEC enters into a direct
interconnection arrangement with a PSAP, the CLEC is not required to submit this arrangement for Commission approval but, instead, is required to file an attestation that such an arrangement has been finalized.

In light of the above, this file is closed.

The company is requested to file, by 15 January 2013, its attestation stating that the 9 1 1 agreement between Xittel and CAUCA has been finalized.

Yours sincerely,

Original signed by

Michel Murray
Director, Regulatory Implementation
