Ottawa, 6 April 2011

Applications processed pursuant to streamlined procedures

In this information bulletin, the Commission sets out lists of applications that did not require a public process and that it processed during the period 1 November 2010 to 31 December 2010 pursuant to its streamlined procedures. These applications involve transfers of ownership and changes in the effective control of broadcasting undertakings, as well as applications for licence amendments or extensions of deadlines.

1.      The Commission has streamlined procedures for its consideration of applications that involve transfers of ownership and changes in the effective control of broadcasting undertakings, licence amendments or extensions of deadlines, and that do not require a public process.[1] Under these procedures, and on a case-by-case basis, the Commission may approve or deny such an application without first having issued a notice of consultation provided that:

a)      its examination of the application reveals no significant policy concern; and

b)      the Commission is convinced that approval or denial would be consistent with its approvals or denials of previous applications.

2.      Where these two conditions are met, the Commission is generally satisfied that a process initiated by a notice of consultation is not required in the public interest and would unnecessarily delay implementation of the transaction contemplated or of other proposals by the applicant.

3.      In the appendices to this information bulletin, the Commission sets out lists of applications that did not require a public process and that it processed during the period 1 November 2010 to 31 December 2010 pursuant to its streamlined procedures. The list of applications involving transfers of ownership and changes in the effective control of broadcasting undertakings is set out in Appendix 1. The list of applications involving licence amendments or extensions of deadlines is set out in Appendix 2.
