Order No. 2008-A-567
December 24, 2008
IN THE MATTER OF the operation of a domestic service and a non-scheduled international service by Hydro-Québec - Licence Nos. 990033 and 980181.
File Nos. M4210/H175-1
Under Licence No. 990033, Hydro-Québec (the Licensee) is authorized to operate a domestic service, medium aircraft.
Under Licence No. 980181, the Licensee is authorized to operate a non-scheduled international service, medium aircraft, to transport traffic on a charter basis between Canada and any other country.
By Decision No. 589-A-2007 dated November 22, 2007, Licence Nos. 990033 and 980181 were suspended pursuant to paragraphs 63(2)(b) and 75(2)(b) of the Canada Transportation Act, S.C., 1996, c. 10, as amended (the CTA). Pursuant to that Decision, the Licensee was provided with a period of one year from the date of the Decision to file an application to reinstate the said licences.
To date, the Licensee has failed to file an application to reinstate the said licences and the Canadian Transportation Agency (the Agency) has determined that, in respect of the services for which the licences were issued, the Licensee does not meet the requirement of subparagraphs 61(a)(ii) and 73(1)(a)(ii) of the CTA.
Pursuant to subsection 63(1) and paragraph 75(1)(a) of the CTA, the Agency must suspend or cancel a domestic licence and a non-scheduled international licence where the Agency has made such a determination.
The Agency has considered the matter and, pursuant to subsection 63(1) and paragraph 75(1)(a) of the CTA, cancels Licence Nos. 990033 and 980181.
