On June 1, 2017, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) issued decision 2017-182: Next-generation 9-1-1 – Modernizing 9-1-1 networks to meet the public safety needs of Canadians. This decision provided a critical path for today’s Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) to build the necessary infrastructure to continue operating by the time legacy networks are expected to be decommissioned by June 2023.
This month, the Canadian NG9-1-1 Coalition, chaired by Diane Pelletier, Director, New Brunswick 911 Bureau, released their Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) Transition Roadmap for Canadian Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP). This strategy document presents a high-level roadmap to an NG9-1-1 transition for Canadian PSAPs and is designed to guide senior leadership, governing and funding authorities.
Join CATAAlliance Chief Business Officer, Kevin Wennekes, and NG-911 Advisory Group Chair, David Farnes, as they interview Diane Pelletier on the Transition Roadmap. There will be a formal presentation followed by an interactive Q&A session.
This planned 1-hour video webinar takes place April 30, 2018, between 11:00-noon EST.
Participation is free for CATA members and any PSAP or law enforcement officer. For all others, a $95 fee applies.
There are only 30 spots available to take part in the live broadcast and a livestream option is also being provided for those who wish only to view the broadcast.
Preference for live participation will be provided to those who wish to engage using a video connection. A telephone call-in option is also available and will be offered should video participation not reach capacity.
A post-broadcast recording of the session will also be made available.
