Providing Content in Canada's Official Languages

Please note that the Official Languages Act requires that government publications be available in both official languages.

In order to meet some of the requirements under this Act, the Commission's transcripts will therefore be bilingual as to their covers, the listing of CRTC members and staff attending the hearings, and the table of contents.

However, the aforementioned publication is the recorded verbatim transcript and, as such, is transcribed in either of the official languages, depending on the language spoken by the participant at the hearing.

Bonjour mesdames et messieurs et bienvenue à cette audience du Conseil. Mon nom est Yves Dupras, je suis conseiller pour la région du Québec et je présiderai cette audience.

On 29 June 2017, the Commission published Broadcasting Notice of Consultation CRTC 2017-223. On 24 August 2017, the Commission published an amended Notice, 2017-223-1, withdrawing two items from consideration at this hearing. The applications referenced in 2017-223, with the exception of the applications withdrawn in 2017-223-1, are being considered today without the appearance of the parties.

The Commission has received interventions for some of the applications and they have been placed on the public file for this hearing.
