Mr. Robin Seaborn
Redbird Communications Inc.
1 Rocket Road
410 – 820 51st St E.

RE:  Application for a Basic International Telecommunications Services (BITS) Licence

Dear Mr. Seaborn,

This letter confirms that Redbird Communications Inc. has completed an application for a Basic International Telecommunications Services (BITS) licence for the provision of international telecommunications services, pursuant to section 16.3 of the Telecommunications Act (the Act). 

The Commission received one intervention regarding Redbird Communications Inc.’s BITS application. After consideration of the comment received, the Commission has approved the application and a BITS licence is enclosed.

Please note the BITS licence conditions, which can be viewed on the back of the enclosed licence, include regular filings to the Commission.

The Commission notes that a BITS licence does not by itself authorize an entity to operate as a facilities-based carrier or non-facilities-based service provider. All entities who provide services as a facilities-based carrier must at all times comply with the appropriate regulatory framework, including the ownership and control requirements of section 16 of the Act and the Canadian Telecommunications Common Carrier Ownership and Control Regulations. Entities who provide services as a non-facilities-based service provider must register as such with the Commission and comply at all times with the appropriate regulatory framework.

Claude Doucet    
Secretary General
