ASL – Why do some proceedings have oral hearings and others do not?

Video Transcript

The CRTC will add an oral hearing to a proceeding if it determines that it will improve overall effectiveness of the proceeding. The oral phase is always preceded by a written phase so you can participate in both phases, or just the written phase. An oral hearing is the opportunity for parties to come together face-to-face and deliver oral presentations to a panel of CRTC Commissioners. "Parties" are any individual or organization that participated in the written proceeding. The panel is selected from the larger group of Commissioners and is responsible to review issues and to make decisions.

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.
