The CRTC issues a press release today that they have started the “process to resolve the projected telephone number shortage that will affect Toronto in 2015”. That’s right… for those who are located in Toronto it sounds like they’ll be adding to the 416 & 647 area code soon. Hopefully the CRTC moves fast because the numbers are expected to run out by July of 2015.
The release stated that “The Commission will establish a Relief Planning Committee to evaluate various relief options and make recommendations to the CRTC. The CRTC will then determine the most appropriate relief plan, taking into consideration the Committee’s recommendations.”
In the official filing the CTRC says you can get involved too:
“10. Parties interested in participating in the activities of the 416/647 RPC (including receiving copies of all submissions) must notify the Commission of their intention to do so by filling out the online form or by writing to the Secretary General (by mail: CRTC, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0N2; by fax: 819-994-0218) by 20 August 2010 (the registration date). Parties are to provide their email addresses, where available. If parties do not have access to the Internet, they are to indicate in their notice whether they wish to receive disk versions of hard-copy filings.”
