 Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC, in French Conseil de la radiodiffusion et des télécommunications canadiennes) was established in 1968 by the Canadian Parliament to replace the Board of Broadcast Governors.
While an exact number cannot be deterimined, thousands of Canadians have purchased and used what they contend to be grey market radio and television services, licenced in the United States but not in Canada.
The CRTC contends that any radio or television equipment or service not specifically authorized by the CRTC for use in Canada is unquestionably black market - that is, the CRTC believes the use of these unlicenced services not only deprives their users of certain legal protections, but directly contravenes Canadian laws.

 Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission
In 1981 the Commission licensed Cancom, a SATELLITE distribution company to provide radio and television services to remote and underserved areas.
The chief function of the Commission in the telecommunications field is in approving rates or tolls to be charged by telecommunications companies under federal jurisdiction, and ensuring that there is no unjust discrimination in the provision of telecommunications services.
Among the important early decisions of the CRTC were a provision for a minimum of Canadian music on the air; rules respecting Canadian content in television schedules; licensing of provincial educational television networks and the nationwide licensing of television systems.

 Canadian Private Broadcasters - Sex-Role Portrayal Code
Compliance is voluntary; but the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) requires adherence to the code as a condition of licence.
In 1982, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) directed Canadian private broadcasters to address the issue of gender stereotyping in the broadcast media.
In 1990, these guidelines were revised and became the Sex-Role Portrayal Code for Television and Radio Programming.

 Opening remarks by Charles Dalfen Chairman, Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission
In its annual monitoring reports of the Canadian telecommunications industry over the past five years, the Commission has found that in general competitors have not gained a substantial market share with respect to local telecommunications services since the issuance of Decision 97-8.
In the Commission's view, robust, sustainable competition is the key not only to protecting consumers of telecommunications services, but about stimulating investment and fostering innovation by telecommunications companies.
In that decision, the first comprehensive decision following the enactment of the 1993 Telecommunications Act, the Commission enunciated its basic policy of opening all telecommunications markets to competition, including the local exchange market, and established a regulatory framework within which that objective could be achieved.

The Commission therefore intends to undertake a general review of the effectiveness and appropriateness of the new regulations after two years, and to consider whether further refinements to the regulatory framework are appropriate in pursuit of the objectives of the Broadcasting Act.

For instance, the Commission fosters the reflection of Canada’s linguistic duality and cultural diversity, the provision of closed captioning for persons who are hearing impaired and descriptive video for persons who are visually impaired, and the development of mechanisms to address concerns such as violence or abusive comment in the broadcast media.
Since it is through television drama that most Canadians participate in their national culture, the fact that English Canadians are largely exposed to the cultural values of another country is a matter of concern.
However, the Commission indicated that implementing such a national list would be counter-productive without appropriate start-up funding and without an effective fining power for enforcement, such as the power to impose administrative monetary penalties, which is not available to the Commission under current legislation.

 Canadian regulators to go easy on VoIP upstarts? Tech News on ZDNet
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, or CRTC, is supposed to decide by Thursday how it will regulate calls made using voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP.
The prediction among some is that the commission may tell incumbent phone operators such as Telus and Bell Canada that their VoIP calls will be regulated in the same way as other calls they offer, while start-ups such as Vonage will be left alone.
But the agency has since come under enormous pressure from Canadian cable operators, Vonage and other VoIP interests.

This underestimation is codified in the tensions within the Telecommunications Act, the lack of a National Access Strategy as called for by the Information Highway Advisory Council; and the lack of real education and participation opportunities for the public on the issues that are shaping their future.
The Federal Government and the CRTC, in their rush to develop policy to de-regulate the telecommunications marketplace and introduce competition for the corporate sector, have seriously underestimated the complexity of problems in maintaining and extending universal access to the entire population.
Telecommunication policy is a national responsibility and therefore preserving universal access requires a national response and methodology.

In its decision, the CRTC cited several of Fillion's on-air remarks, including his postulating about the relationship between the breast size and intelligence of a local TV personality, his opinion that psychiatric patients should be euthanized and his view that African students at Laval University are the children of brutal dictators.

In a landmark ruling, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission said Internet-based phone service won't flourish unless phone giants such as Bell Canada are kept in regulatory shackles.
In a 7-to-2 panel ruling, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission didn't buy the arguments of Bell and other phone giants that so-called Voice-over-Internet Protocol service, or VoIP, is just another Internet application - like e-mail or instant messaging - and should be exempt from regulation.
Commission chairman Charles Dalfen, citing the established phone companies' 98-per-cent grip on the residential telephone market, said without price regulation it would be too tempting for carriers such as Bell and Telus to engage in predatory pricing tactics aimed at killing new VoIP services before they take root.

MCTV was created in 1980 when Cambrian Broadcasting, which owned the CTV affiliates in Sudbury, North Bay and Timmins, merged with Mid-Canada Television, which owned the CBC affiliates in the same cities and CHRO in Pembroke.
Prior to this, all television stations in Canada were owned and operated by the CBC.
