In May of 2020, FCM, working closely with its Rural Forum and Technical and legal advisors, drafted this submission to the CRTC’s Notice of Consultation 2019-406: Call for comments regarding potential barriers to the deployment of broadband-capable networks in underserved areas in Canada.

The objective of this submission is to encourage the Commission and the parties to consider the range of possible approaches to addressing barriers to investment in high-quality fixed and wireless access networks in rural areas, small towns, and remote communities.

FCM continues to remain engaged throughout the consultation process.
