RE:  Part 1 Application by Cloudwifi Inc. for an Order completing Cloudwifi’s CLEC Registration or to require Bell Canada to sign a MALI with Cloudwifi – Request for information

Dear Mr. Hudda and Mr. Blakey:

On 18 March 2019, Cloudwifi Inc. (Cloudwifi) filed a Part 1 application, requesting that the Commission either issue an Order completing Cloudwifi’s CLEC Registration or require Bell Canada to sign a Special Master Agreement for Local Interconnection (MALI), with accompanying Schedule C, with Cloudwifi. 

After further analysis Commission staff consider it necessary to examine the Special MALI and Schedule C in question in order to complete its analysis of the above noted application. 

Therefore, Commission staff requests that Cloudwifi and Bell provide to the Commission a complete copy of the last proposed version of the Special Master Agreement for Local Interconnection (MALI) – including the Schedule C to that agreement – it served to the other party. Parties should identify the sections for which there are issues preventing the execution of the Special MALI. The Special MALI and Schedule C are to be filed no later than 23 September 2019.

Any document filed with the Commission must be served on other parties.  Where a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, not merely sent, by that date.

A copy of this procedural letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding. Persons that wish to designate information contained in their submissions as confidential must do so in accordance with the Telecommunications Act Footnote1 and with the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure. Footnote2 This requires that:
