Re: Compliance and Enforcement and Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2017-405 – Implementation of universal blocking of calls with blatantly illegitimate caller identification

On 16 November 2017, the Commission issued Compliance and Enforcement and Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2017-405 seeking comments on its proposal to mandate network blocking for certain types of calls with blatantly illegitimate caller identification. The process called for interventions to be filed by 18 December 2017 and replies to be filed by 22 January 2018.

The Commission has received letters from Bell Canada dated 8 January 2018, Canadian Network Operators Consortium (CNOC) dated 9 January 2018 Inc. and Québecor Media dated 10 January 2018 raising various issues and requesting directions that would affect the process established in NoC CRTC 2017-405.  The letters were filed in confidence, but copies were provided to certain telecommunications service providers.  Bell Canada, CNOC and Québecor Media are to file abridged versions of their respective letters by 23 January 2017.   Commission staff will issue a letter shortly addressing the requests for confidentiality in respect of the three letters. 

In the circumstances, the 22 January 2018 deadline for replies is suspended, pending disposition by the Commission of the matter raised in the letters.
