The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has won the Institute of Public Administration (IPAC) gold award for its “forward thinking and innovation in regulation.”
IPAC, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing excellence in the public service, presented the CRTC with the Award for Innovative Management at its annual conference in Ottawa in August.
The theme of this year’s award was “Collaboration: New Approaches to Policy and Management.” The CRTC won for its collaborative approach to creating solutions for problems in the telecom industry through its Interconnection Steering Committee (CISC). The CISC is a group of industry representatives, consumer and public interest groups, and CRTC staff, created to tackle the issues arising from competition in the Canadian telecom sector. The CRTC was chosen as this year’s recipient out of a field of 108 entrants from other federal, provincial and municipal government authorities.
