Notice No. DGTP-002-95
This notice announces revisions to the microwave spectrum policies for Canada with the release of the policy document entitled, "Revisions to Microwave Spectrum Utilization Policies in the Range of 1-20 GHz".
In the Spring of 1993, Industry Canada initiated a comprehensive Spectrum Policy Review in part to take advantage of the new frequency allocations made by the 1992 World Administrative Radio Conference (WARC-92), in which Canada was an active participant, and to accommodate the increasing demand for spectrum by existing and emerging radio services. Five public documents making proposals on specific spectrum allocation and utilization issues were released to provide the basis for wide public consultation. In particular the document entitled "Proposed Spectrum Utilization for Certain Services Above 1 GHz" (DGTP-005-93) addressed spectrum policy revisions for most of the fixed service frequency bands in the range 1-20 GHz.
Based on the extensive public comments received and findings from public meetings organized by industry, Industry Canada is now issuing Revisions to Microwave Spectrum Utilization Policies in the Range of 1-20 GHz to reflect the changing spectrum needs and applications of fixed services.
Industry Canada recognizes that a diversity of microwave radio facilities in terms of capacities and applications will continue to play a key role in the development of a world-class information infrastructure. Also, the microwave spectrum requirements have to be carefully balanced against the demands of a wide range of radio services and systems.
