ASL – Who participates in a proceeding?

Video Transcript

Unless otherwise specified, anyone can participate in a proceeding. Most proceedings are about public issues and involve a wider participation from the community. However, in rare instances, some proceedings involve only those identified.

When the CRTC initiates a proceeding to review its policies, anyone who formally participates is known as a party. There are different types of parties:

If a member of the public or a service provider initiates a proceeding by submitting a Part 1 application with the CRTC, then he or she is known as the Applicant. The Interveners review the Applicant's application, comment, provide evidence in support or against the issue, and state what decision they would like the CRTC to make on the issue.

This video is intended for Canadians that use American Sign Language (ASL) as their primary language. It answers some of the frequently asked questions on proceedings.
