NENA applauds the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission’s recent adoption of the NENA i3 Standard as the sole architecture for Next Generation 9-1-1 services in Canada. The Commission’s approval of recommendations made by the CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee’s (CISC) and Emergency Services Working Group (EWG) is a major step toward the deployment of NG9-1-1 in Canada. This decision follows many months of education and advocacy by NENA leaders throughout Canada, and will provide a clear path forward for all 9-1-1 stakeholders as they make the transition to Internet-Protocol-based NG9-1-1 services.

Canada’s adoption of the i3 Standard, which is also used in other nations, will help ensure wider interoperability of 9-1-1 networks, equipment, systems and devices across Canada, North America, and the world. The CRTC’s decision will specifically facilitate trans-border collaboration between U.S. and Canadian public safety authorities, as they work together to save lives and protect property. NENA looks forward to working further with Canadian authorities as they implement the i3 Standard.
