Re:  Establishment of a regulatory framework for next-generation 9-1-1 in Canada, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2016-116 – Request for extension to file costs application

Dear Ms McHugh,

By letter dated 28 February 2017, the Canadian National Society of the Deaf-Blind (CSNDB) requested an extension to the timeline set out in section 65 of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure relating to the filing of applications for final costs.  Specifically, CNSDB requested an extension of the deadline to 8 March, 2017.

The CSNDB submitted that given its lack of familiarity with Commission processes, the complexity of the documents that must be submitted by a costs application and the difficulty experienced in reading these documents, additional time was needed to complete its costs application.

Having regard for the above and the relatively short extension being requested, we are of the view that the request is reasonable.
