    CanWISP has been busy over the past months.  We have represented the Canadian WISP Industry by participating in various consultations with ISED and the CRTC.  Be sure to check out our Government Representation page (  These consultations take place over many months and require a significant investment of time and funding.

    We have participated in efforts to:

    Highlight the need for more appropriately priced spectrum fees for Point-To-Point links. (January and February 2019 - ISED: Consultation on License Fees for Point-to-Point Radio Systems (DGSO-001-18) )

    I encourage you to have a look at the submissions on the CRTC and ISED websites accessible via the included links.
