In Canada, the Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA) undertakes the primary administrative functions for all International Mobile Station Identity (IMSI) resources. The CNA administers IMSI resources in accordance with the Canadian International Mobile Station Identity Assignment Guidelines developed by the Canadian Steering Committee on Numbering and approved by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
The administration of IMSIs in Canada is conducted under the regulatory authority of the CRTC. The IMSI administrator administers only the Home Network Identity (HNI) segment of the IMSI. The HNI uniquely identifies the home wireless network of a Wireless Service Provider (WSP) or Wireless Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (WCLEC) subscriber and contains the Mobile Country Code (MCC) and the Mobile Network Code (MNC). The remaining segment of the IMSI, the Mobile Station Identification Number (MSIN), is directly administered by the wireless network licensee to which the HNI is assigned.
