It's an experimental license and not an amateur radio license so it has
nothing to do with the amateur call letters and their numerical assignments
based on Provinces.
The same happens down here Phil. Boeing in Seattle for example has many
experimental licenses, some in ham bands even, and none have a 7 in them.

Subject: [jt65-hf] 1st VE Licence on 60 metres
Canada issues its first Developmental License VX9GHD on the 5 meg, 60 meter
Industry Canada issues its first license on the new 60 meter developmental
band, VX9GHD to VE3FI Russ Hemphill today. Canadians have been waiting for 3
years for this new opportunity to join the USA, and Britain. This band is
badly needed for Emergency Communications, when conditions on 40 and 80 are
not suitable for transmitting or receiving traffic. This license is for one
year, then it will be open to all Canadian amateurs using their own call
Why a VE3 gets a VX9 call is beyond me, but watch out! We'll be there soon!
