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

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

By letter dated 11 February 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 a further extension to the deadline to file final written submissions.  They stated that the extension to the deadline to file final written submissions to 14 February 2017, which was granted by Commission staff letter dated 1 February 2017, was not sufficient and requested a further extension to 20 February 2017 to submit final written submissions, citing the need for more time to prepare its submissions because its members have been focusing its resources to on the public hearing associated with Review of the Wireless Code, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2016-293.

Under the circumstances, Commission staff considers that a further 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 20 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.

Sincerely,
