Extension of deadline for comments
Deadline for submission of comments: two weeks after the Government makes its official response to the Commission’s report on the Canadian Television Fund

In Call for comments on proposed amendments to the benefits policy set out in Building on Success: A Policy Framework for Canadian Television, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-62, July 14, 2008 (Public Notice 2008-62), the Commission called for comments on a proposal to amend the benefits policy set out in Building on Success: A Policy Framework for Canadian Television, Public Notice CRTC 1999-97, June 11, 1999, so that a percentage of future television benefits would be directed to the Canadian Television Fund (CTF).

The Commission received a letter from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (the CBC) on August 15, 2008, requesting that the Commission defer the process initiated by Public Notice 2008-62 until after the Department of Canadian Heritage has determined the future structure of the CTF and the Commission has completed its review of new media, a process launched in Call for comments on the scope of a future proceeding on Canadian broadcasting in new media, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-44, May 15, 2008.

Accordingly, the new deadline for the receipt of comments in response to Public Notice 2008-62 is two weeks after the Government makes its official response to the Commission’s CTF Report.
