New TURF file for Canada's 5Mhz allocation?

I just read this entry from the latest ARRL newsletter that Canadian hams may soon have access to a segment of the 5Mhz band:

Radio Amateurs in Canada to Gain Access to New 5 MHz Allocation with 100 W ERP

Radio Amateurs in Canada are poised to join those in several other nations around the world who have access to a new 60-meter band, 5351.5 - 5366.5 kHz, as agreed upon at World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15), but with a maximum power of 100 W effective radiated power (ERP).

So, I guess this begs the question of whether we could have a 'Canadian' TURF file created while we wait for our American brethren to catch up?

    No new TURF is needed.  Canadians would just request the IARU Region 2 TURF to get the modified 60m allocation.

    Does anyone have the link that could be used for such a request? I did look but was not able to find a reference at www.iaru-r2.org. Thanks!
