# Long-Haul Interswitching (LHI) - How to Authorize Someone Who is Not a Lawyer to Represent Your Company

## Instructions

If you are a shipper applying for LHI and you want someone from outside your company, who is not a lawyer, to represent you in the LHI adjudication, you must formally authorize that person to be your company's representative. You must also send us the authorization document. You can create a document using these instructions:

1. Give your document this title: Authorization of Representative
2. Include the following basic information in the document:
• A statement saying "[Shipper company name] authorizes [representative's name] to act on its behalf in this Long-Haul Interswitching adjudication before the Canadian Transportation Agency."
• A statement from the representative, saying "I agree to act on behalf of [shipper company name] in this Long-Haul Interswitching adjudication before the Canadian Transportation Agency."
