Telecommunications - Lexpert Practice Area Definition

Telecommunications law includes a wide range of activities referrable to the regulated sectors of telecommunications, broadcasting and broadcast distribution. More precisely, it refers to activities regulated by the Department of Industry Canada pursuant to the Radiocommunication Act (and related regulations) and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ("CRTC"), inter alia, pursuant to the Telecommunications Act (and related regulations). Communications law is a term often used for practice related to activities regulated by the CRTC, inter alia, pursuant to the Broadcasting Act (and related regulations). Telecommunications practitioners advise companies whose activities are regulated directly by the CRTC and/or Industry Canada, as well as other companies whose activities might be affected by agency and department decisions. Communications practitioners tend to focus on licensing activity before the CRTC. Other aspects of telecommunication law include telephone, telecommunications, online regulation and policy, telecommunications and multimedia, international negotiations and agreements. These governing statutes may be amended from time to time to include new forms of telecommunications.
