About us

The Telecommunications Standards Advisory Council of Canada has undertaken a review of its scope. While our core focus remains the same, it was noted that there is a convergence between the Information Technology field and the Telecommunications / Radio fields. TSACC has decided to change its name to reflect this convergence.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that TSACC will now be known as the Information and Communications Technology Standards Advisory Council of Canada. Its new abbreviation will be ISACC.

ISACC is an industry-government partnership formed in 1991 to develop strategic directions for standardization in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sectors. It provides a strategic focus for the development and implementation of Canadian ICT standards, through its mission to:

recommend strategies for domestic and international ICT standards development, implementation and promotion, through the existing infrastructure, which will meet the needs of Canadian users, industry, and government.
