Canadian National Organization for the ITU (CNO/ITU)


The Canadian National Organization for the ITU-T (CNO/ITU-T) was established in 1973.  The objective of the CNO/ITU-T is to promote and coordinate Canadian participation in the activities of the ITU-T.  It comprises members from the public and private sectors of the Canadian telecommunications community.  The CNO/ITU-T fulfills the purposes of the ITU relating to telecommunications standardization. The National Study Groups are responsible for studying technical, operating and tariff questions and adopting recommendations on them with a view to standardizing telecommunications on a worldwide basis.
