Notice No. DGTP-002-05Revisions 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-012-04, dated December 4, 2004, based on most of the decisions adopted by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) at the World Radio Conference 2003 (WRC-2003).

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:

  • 216 - 222 MHz;
  • 1710 - 2200 MHz; and
  • 3650 - 3700 MHz.

With the exception of the above allocation proceedings under way, the revisions incorporated into the Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations reflect the results of the consultation on the WRC-2003 decisions.
