client, Xplornet Communications Inc., is looking for a Regulatory Counsel!
Xplornet is one of Canada’s leading broadband service providers, with customers and

Ontario and reporting to the Executive Vice President, General Counsel, the Regulatory
Counsel will play an integral part of the legal team, preparing CRTC applications
and submissions, monitoring and advising on policies, proceedings and legislative

regulatory bodies. The Regulatory Counsel will work closely with the Vice President,
Public Affairs and Communications in developing and implementing the strategic plan
