Notice No. DGTP-003-04 -- Revisions to the Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations

This Notice announces the release of the revised Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations. Proposals to amend the Canadian Table were made in Gazette Notice DGTP-002-02 dated April 5, 2002 based on most of the decisions adopted by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) at the World Radio Conference 2000 (WRC-2000).

The Canadian Table allocates frequency bands to radio services within the scope of the International Table and as required to meet Canadian needs. Canadian footnotes provide the particular provisions and conditions for use of those radio services in Canada.

The Department has, or will, initiate separate public consultations on domestic allocations in several frequency bands. Allocation decisions will be announced in due course. These bands include:

  • 614-806 MHz;
  • 1710 - 2200 MHz;
  • 2500-2690 MHz; and
  • 3-30 GHz (selected domestic footnotes).

With the exception of the above allocation proceedings underway, the revisions incorporated into the Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations reflect the results of the consultation on the WRC-2000 decisions. Since the release of the Canadian Table in 2000, there have been administrative and formatting changes to the Canadian footnotes using the ITU standard wording.

Also, the Department will soon be launching a consultation on the adoption of the decisions of WRC-2003.
