      WHEREAS it appears to a Director of the Ontario Securities Commission (the "Director") that:

  1. Each of Nortel Networks Corporation ("NNC") and Nortel Networks Limited ("NNL") is incorporated under the Canada Business Corporations Act and is a reporting issuer in the Province of Ontario.

  3. On April 28, 2004, NNC issued and filed on SEDAR a press release disclosing that each of NNC and NNL will restate the financial results reported in each of the quarterly periods of 2003 and for earlier periods including 2002 and 2001 and will be delayed in filing its annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2003 by the required filing date under Ontario securities law, namely May 19, 2004 and its interim statements for the first quarter ended March 31, 2004 by the required filing date under Ontario securities law, namely May 15, 2004.
  4. Each of NNC and NNL has failed to file its interim statements for the three-month period ended March 31, 2004 as required to be filed under Ontario securities law on or before May 15, 2004, and has not filed such statements as of the date of this order.

      AND WHEREAS the Director is of the opinion that it is in the public interest to make this order;

      AND WHEREAS the Director is of the opinion that the length of time required to conclude a hearing could be prejudicial to the public interest;
