Subject: Use of deferral accounts to improve access to telecommunications services for persons with disabilities and to expand broadband services to rural and remote communities, Telecom Decision CRTC 2008-1 (Telecom Decision 2008-1) – 2010 Deferral Account Accessibility Report

Dear Sir:

In a letter dated 31 March 2010, TELUS Communications Company (TCC) requested a two week extension, to 14 April 2010, for the filing of its 2010 Deferral Account Accessibility Report pursuant to paragraph 26 of Telecom Decision 2008-1.  TCC submitted that it required more time to prepare its report, and that it expected that no party would be prejudiced as a result of a delay.  TCC also noted that a similar delay had already been requested by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada.

The TCC request is accepted.  Accordingly, the deadline for TCC to file its 2010 annual report pursuant to paragraph 26 of Telecom Decision 2008-1 is extended to 14 April 2010.

Yours sincerely,
