Notice No. DGRB-005-00 / DGTP-007-00 — Policy and Licensing Procedures for the Auction of the Additional PCS Spectrum in the 2 GHz Frequency Range

This Notice announces the release of the paper entitled Policy and Licensing Procedures for the Auction of Additional PCS Spectrum in the 2 GHz Frequency Range. The purpose of this document is to license additional spectrum to accommodate the growth of mobile wireless services such as PCS, and to facilitate the implementation of new services. This Notice and the above-noted paper initiate the licensing process for this additional spectrum by calling for completed application forms and financial deposits.

On December 17, 1999, Industry Canada issued Canada Gazette Notice No. DGRB-018-99, entitled Consultation on the Proposed Policy and Licensing Procedures for the Auction of Additional PCS Spectrum in the 2 GHz Frequency Range. That Notice sought comments on policy issues and the process to issue licences for exclusive access to spectrum bands in service areas across Canada. In response to the Notice, submissions were received from 13 interested parties.
