Review of the Canadian Communications Legislative Framework
The City of Calgary (The City) appreciates the opportunity to provide input into the review of The Telecommunication Act and Radio communications Act. Enclosed in the link below our response to the questions raised in the Panel's Terms of Reference.
The City recommends that proposed changes to the legislation consider a comprehensive and coordinated strategy that aligns with federal, provincial and municipal mandates. Creating an investment friendly regulatory environment with consideration for the need of municipalities to control their assets is imperative in providing long term benefits to citizens.
Moving forward legislation that facilitates productive partnerships between telecoms, government and citizens will ensure improved access, affordability and maximized economic opportunities.
The City of Calgary remains committed to continued dialogue and we look forward to providing additional input to support this consultation process.
