The Canadian Radiocommunications Information and Notification Service is an offering of CRINS-SINRC Corporation - a not-for-profit corporation owned and operated by Land Use Authorities (LUAs).

The wireless industry nor the federal government have any ownership stake in CRINS-SINRC Corporation to assure the public of its neutrality and commitment to transparent discourse.

Proponents pay an application fee, as dictated by the Land Use Authority, for each proposed site application submitted through CRINS-SINRC to recover the costs of processing the application and managing communications with the public. There are no fees paid to CRINS-SINRC as a result of any specific outcome regarding the application.

CRINS-SINRC, from time to time, may take advantage of funding programs available through federal, provincial and regional initiatives to offset its operating costs.

The CRINS-SINRC services are provided free of charge to participating Land Use Authorities and the public. In return, Land Use Authorities agree to:

  1. Adopt CRINS-SINRC as the designated representative for the submission of proposed radiocommunications sites for consultation and review within their jurisdiction in accordance with Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada (ISEDC)’s CPC 2-0-03 (2014)..
  2. Actively participate in providing input to applications received within their jurisdiction.
  3. Provide assistance to CRINS to ensure landowners affected by proposed radiocommunications sites receive notification of applications.
