ASL – If I did not participate in the proceeding by submitting a written comment can I still go to the oral hearing?

Video Transcript

Yes. Members of the public are generally welcome to attend a proceeding as a member of the audience. You do not, however, have the same rights as the Applicant or the other parties making a presentation. "Parties" are any individual or organization that participated in the written proceeding. For example, you are not served documents, you are not able to make a presentation to the Panel of CRTC Commissioners, or speak at the hearing.

In very few rare instances, all or some of the hearing may be closed to the public because confidential information is being discussed. This is called an In Camera hearing.

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.
