CCTS reviewing Federal Court decision

Will make public statement before Wireless Code deadline

Ottawa, May 20, 2015 – The Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services (CCTS) is reviewing a Federal Court of Appeal decision confirming that the Wireless Code will come into full effect on June 3, 2015.

“We’re looking at the court’s decision and discussing the details,” said CCTS Commissioner and CEO Howard Maker. “We expect to release a public statement before June 3 to update consumers, service providers, and other stakeholders on how this decision will impact our future administration of the Wireless Code.”
