GPS Repeaters – Current Legislation (Canada)

Licensing of GPS repeaters in Canada

The Minister of Industry, pursuant to the Department of Industry Act, the Radiocommunication Act and the Radiocommunication Regulations, with due regard to the objectives of the Telecommunications Act, is responsible for spectrum management in Canada.

GPS active repeaters will be authorized as fixed radio-determination service stations, as defined in the Radiocommunication Act, on a non-standard, no-protection, non-interference basis to other radio users.

Licences for GPS active repeater stations will normally be issued to Category 1 public safety agencies only (police, fire, emergency medical) and at the sole discretion of the District Director of the local Industry Canada Spectrum Management office.

A detailed document on the subject “Licensing Procedure for Global Positioning System (GPS) Active Repeater Stations” is available here
