Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

The GNWT participates in Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) Proceedings that could have an impact on the North. We strive to take a balanced approach that considers the greatest public good, and ensures that:

  • The CRTC and Government of Canada consider the interests of the GNWT, residents and businesses when making any decisions that could affect the North
  • Northerners have access to affordable, competitive and reliable telecommunications and broadband services, similar to those available in southern Canada
  • An open, competitive environment is created for telecommunications and broadband companies in the North.

The GNWT often works with the Yukon and Nunavut governments on areas that concern us all, and when 'speaking with one voice' can benefit residents and businesses in all 3 territories.
