RE: Introduction of Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) Services – Tariff applications

In Establishment of new deadlines for Canada’s transition to next-generation 9-1-1, Telecom Decision CRTC 2021-199, 14 June 2021, the Commission directed NG9-1-1 network providers to establish NG9-1-1 networks, complete all NG9-1-1 production onboarding activities and be ready to provide NG9-1-1 Voice wherever public safety answering points have been established in a particular region by 1 March 2022. The Commission further directed NG9-1-1 providers to file proposed NG9-1-1 wholesale and retail tariffs by no later than 1 November 2021.

In compliance with the directives set out in that Decision, the companies listed in the attachment below filed tariff applications on or before 1 November 2021.

With the exception of Bell Canada who filed its application as a Competitor tariff, all other companies filed their tariff applications as Group B tariff applications. Given that these tariff applications address both wholesale and retail aspects, Commission staff is of the view that it is more appropriate to process these applications as Competitor tariff applications as set out most recently in Approval processes for tariff applications and intercarrier agreements, Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-455-1, 19 February 2016 (TIB 2010-455-1).

Accordingly, all NG9-1-1 tariff applications filed as Group B applications will be treated as Competitor applications in accordance with TIB CRTC 2010-455-1. Commission staff does not require that the tariff applications be re-filed to reflect this change.
