RE: Jeopardy Condition Suspension for Area Code Complex 204/431

Kelly T. Walsh:

By letter and email dated 17 November 2021, the Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA) advised CRTC staff that based on the results of the October 2021 Jeopardy Numbering Resource Utilisation Forecast (J-NRUF), area code complex 204/431, is no longer in a jeopardy condition.

In its letter, the CNA indicated that it will:

The CNA also indicated that it will continue to restrict central office (CO) code assignments based on the July 2021 Relief – Numbering Resource Utilization Forecast (R-NRUF). The CNA noted that this restriction is required, as the October 2021 R-NRUF indicated that if there was unrestricted CO code assignments, the area code complex could slip back into a jeopardy condition before the introduction of the new relief area code.

CRTC staff agrees with the CNA’s approach to suspending the jeopardy condition in area code complex 204/431 as noted in the foregoing.
