Statement by the CRTC’s Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer, Ian Scott, on the government’s policy direction


Today, we took note of the final text of the government’s policy direction, which requires that the CRTC consider how it can promote competition, affordability, consumer interests and innovation in its decisions on telecommunications matters.

As we continue our work to ensure that Canadians have a choice of innovative and affordable telecommunications services, this policy direction will be applied to current and future telecommunications proceedings, including the review of mobile wireless services and other proceedings where final submissions have not yet been made.

We will continue to engage with Canadians in innovative ways to ensure their views and needs are part of the public record of our proceedings that enable us to make decisions in the public interest.

Ian Scott, Chairperson and CEO of the CRTC
