OTTAWA – October 23, 2018 – The Canadian Numbering Administration Consortium (CNAC) today announced that COMsolve Inc. has been selected to operate as the Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA) for the five year term commencing on or about January 1, 2019 following the expiration of the current agreement with Leidos Canada Incorporated.
The selection of COMsolve as the new CNA follows the completion of an open request for proposal process. The CNA is the entity responsible for administering and issuing telephone numbers and other telecommunications codes in Canada. It operates under the regulatory supervision of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) and is funded by the Canadian telecommunications industry. The CNA role is currently performed by Leidos Canada, which will be transferring all CNA systems and information to COMsolve on or about December 31, 2018.
CNAC is owned and operated by members of the Canadian telecommunications industry. CNAC has been delegated by the CRTC the responsibility of supervising the administration of numbering resources in Canada, including contracting with a vendor to perform the CNA role.
“The selection of COMsolve to perform the CNA role for the next 5 year term is a significant event in the telecommunications industry. We expect the transition from Leidos Canada to COMsolve to be completed by the end of this year” said Deirdre Massiah-Gomes, president of the CNAC.
