The CRTC has mandated that the Next-Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) networks must be ready to deliver NG9-1-1 voice services by June 2020 and deliver NG9-1-1 text messaging services by December 2020. GIS data and processes will play increasingly important roles in NG9-1-1. Missing, incomplete or inaccurate data will delay locating callers and timely response to emergencies. As such, GIS professionals at every level will need to ensure data meets or exceeds the national standards.
