From: RAC Headquarters Date: May 17, 1999 Subject: PROPOSAL TO STREAMLINE THE AUTHORIZATION PROCESS Industry Canada has released its proposal to streamline the authorization process for the Amateur Radio Service. In short Industry Canada proposes: - to make the Amateur Radio Operator Certificate the sole authorization document - eliminate the radio licence thereby eliminating the licence issuance fee, the short term fee and the $24 annual renewal fee - to modify the operator certificate to include the operator's assigned call sign - to charge a fee($60)for user initiated transactions The complete documentation can be found on the Industry Canada web site at: http://strategis.ic.gc.ca/SSG/sf01709e.html
