Consultations and hearings: have your say
The CRTC works closely with individuals, broadcasters, service providers and businesses to enhance broadcasting and telecommunications (telecom) services in Canada.
To do that, we depend on you, Canadians, to tell us what matters to you. What do you want and need? What is working for you? What isn’t? We gather these opinions and comments during public proceedings and hearings on specific topics.
Find proceedings (consultations) open for comment by topic:
- Phone and Internet (telecom)
- Radio, TV and distribution (broadcasting)
- Unwanted calls, spam and rules for telemarketers (compliance and enforcement)
