Restructuring and Access

The purpose of this Notice is to announce the release of an information document on the restructuring of INTELSAT and Inmarsat and on recent initiatives concerning access to the facilities of these organizations.

The 1997 World Trade Organization Agreement on Basic Telecommunications has resulted in considerable liberalization in the provision of international telecommunication services among its signatory countries. The information document is released in the context of the liberalization of the Canadian telecommunication market, more particularly the termination of the monopoly of Teleglobe Canada Inc. (Teleglobe Canada) for the provision of facilities for overseas telecommunication services on October 1, 1998.

The information document entitled INTELSAT and Inmarsat, Restructuring and Access is available electronically via the Internet at the following address:
