RE: Industry Notification of Number Portability in exchanges in Quebec

Dear Mr. de Souza:

By letters, dated 14 and 25 September 2015, Téléphone Milot Inc. (Téléphone Milot or the company) submitted notification of the availability of number portability in the exchanges of Saint-Paulin, Saint-Barnabé, Saint-Alexis-des-Monts and Charette, Quebec. The company also indicated that number portability for wireless service providers (WSPs) would be made ready for 1 December 2015.

On 25 November 2015, Téléphone Milot informed Commission staff that it had not received any wireless number portability (WNP) requests for these exchanges. The company proposed therefore that it would not proceed with the implementation of WNP in these exchanges.

Commission staff considers Téléphone Milot’s proposal not to implement WNP for an activation date of 1 December 2015 to be reasonable.

Commission staff reminds Téléphone Milot that in the future, if it receives a valid request for WNP from a WSP, it is required to provide industry notification at least 90 calendar days prior to the WSP’s requested commercial launch date of WNP. Further, as indicated in Appendix “G” of the approved CISC Network Management Guidelines Version 3.3, the notification letter must be addressed to the Secretary General, Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.
