Business

The CRTC engages in a wide range of activities. We supervise and regulate over 2,000 broadcasters, such as TV services, AM and FM radio stations as well as the companies that bring these services to you. We also regulate telecommunications carriers, including major telephone companies.

We issue, renew and amend broadcasting licences. We also issue licences for international telecommunications. These services allow telephone users to make and receive calls outside of Canada.

We make decisions on broadcasting industry mergers, acquisitions and ownership changes.

We approve tariffs and certain agreements for the telecommunications sector.
