RE: SaskTel application to Review and Vary Telecom Decision 2021-45 - Broadband Fund - Project funding approval for BH Telecom Corp.’s Saskatchewan transport fibre project

Dear Mr. Beckman:

Commission staff are in receipt of your above-referenced application filed on 18 March 2021.

In your letter, SaskTel states that pursuant to sections 30-34 of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules of Procedure) and to section 39 of the Telecommunications Act (the Act), SaskTel designates information contained in its application as confidential.  SaskTel subsequently states that an abridged version of its application is not being provided for the public record, as it would be meaningless.

Staff considers that an abridged version of SaskTel’s application is required to disclose the existence of SaskTel’s application to the public.

Accordingly, SaskTel is to provide an abridged version of its application, in a manner consistent with the Rules of Procedure and the Act, by 29 March 2021.


Original signed by

Kim Wardle
Director, Broadband Fund
Telecommunications Sector
