Re: Part 1 applications by TELUS Communications Inc. and Iris Technologies Inc. - Procedural matter

Dear Sirs:

The Commission received a Part 1 application by TELUS Communications Inc. (TCI) dated 3 August 2018 requesting relief regarding alleged renewed traffic stimulation activities involving telephone numbers of Iris Technologies Inc. (Iristel) in the incumbent serving territory of Northwestel Inc. Among other things, TCI requested that Iristel’s current rate for traffic termination should be made interim while the Commission considers the requests set out in its application.

The Commission also received a Part 1 application by Iristel on behalf of itself and its affiliate Ice Wireless Inc. dated 7 August 2018. Iristel requested interim and final relief consisting of Commission orders compelling TCI to take the necessary measures to ensure that calls to end users would be terminated correctly.

Commission staff is of the view that the issues raised in these two applications are interrelated. Accordingly, these two applications will be considered together.

Parties may file comments on these applications by 10 September 2018, in accordance with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure. Where a party wishes to comment on both applications, only one intervention should be filed. TCI and Iristel may file reply comments, sending a copy to all parties, by 20 September 2018.
