This proceeding, which is the third consultation period for Let's Talk Broadband Internet, begins on April 11 and is scheduled to finish on Thursday April 28, 2016.

An online consultation forum will be available to Canadians who wish to share comments on issues raised at the hearing and on any other issues reviewed during this important proceeding.

Canadians will be able to watch the hearing on the Cable Public Affairs Channel's (CPAC) website:
