This month, ISED published CPC-2-1-28, Issue 2, Voluntary Licensing of Licence-Exempt Wireless Microphones in the TV Bands, which supersedes Issue 1, Voluntary Licensing of Licence-Exempt Low-Power Radio Apparatus in the TV Bands (2015).
In March of 2019, ISED released SMSE-003-19, Decision on the Technical, Policy, and Licensing Framework for Wireless Microphones, in order to update the regulatory framework regarding wireless microphones. Additional spectrum for wireless microphone use and new licensing eligibility requirements were presented, and as a result, the moratorium on licensing of wireless microphones was lifted in the TV broadcasting bands (54-72 MHz, 76-88 MHz, 174-216 MHz, and 470-608 MHz) as well as a portion of the 600 MHz band, specifically from 657-663 MHz.
Under this new issue, the following frequency bands for use by wireless microphones and the maximum bandwidth and power allowed for the operation of these devices are certified under RSS-210
