Subject: Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2017-33, Review of the regulatory framework for text-based message relay services

Dear Sirs and Madam:

By letter dated 16 August 2017, Canadian Association of the Deaf-Association des Sourds du Canada (CAD-ASC), the Deaf Wireless Canada Consultative Committee (DWCC), and the Canadian National Society of the Deaf-Blind (CNSDB), collectively the DWCC et al, requested to file supplementary information on the record of the above-noted proceeding, acknowledging that the record was closed on July 18, 2017. 

By letter dated 17 August 2017, the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) indicated its support for the DWCC et al’s procedural request.

On 18 August 2017, TELUS Communications Company (TCC) responded to DWCC et al’s letter, submitting that it does not support DWCC et al’s procedural request.

A determination will be forthcoming with respect to the above procedural request and, if necessary, additional process will follow.

Yours sincerely,
