RE: Establishment of a regulatory framework for next-generation 9-1-1 in Canada, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2016-116 - Request for extension

Dear Ms. Anderson-Kellett, Mr. Folino and Ms. McHugh,

By letter dated 31 January 2017, the Deaf Wireless Canada Consultative Committee, the Canadian Association of the Deaf/Association des Sourds du Canada, and the Canadian National Society of the Deaf-Blind requested an extension to 17 February 2017 to submit final written submissions citing the need for more time to review the transcripts and the need to prepare for the public hearing associated with Review of the Wireless Code, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2016-293.

Under the circumstances, given that the duration of the oral hearing was limited to five days during which transcripts were made available the following business day, Commission staff considers that a two week extension to the deadline for submission of final written responses is appropriate.

The Deaf Wireless Canada Consultative Committee, the Canadian Association of the Deaf, and the Canadian National Society of the Deaf-Blind will now have until 14 February 2017 to file their final submission. This final submission is to be limited to matters within the scope of the proceeding and may not respond to the comments made in the final submissions that have already been received from other parties.

Staff reminds parties that if procedural requests for extensions are required, they can be submitted at any time, prior to the applicable deadline. These requests should be made as far in advance of the deadline as possible.
