Re: Proceeding to establish a mandatory code of Internet services – CAD-ASC et al.’s request to extend their initial submission deadline
Dear Ms. Anderson-Kellett, Mr. Folino, Ms. McHugh, and Mr. Richman,
On 9 November 2018, the CRTC published Call for comments – Proceeding to establish a mandatory code for Internet services, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2018-422 (the Notice).
On 18 December 2018, the Commission received a letter from the Canadian Association of the Deaf - Association des Sourds du Canada (CAD-ASC), Deaf Wireless Canada Consultative Committee - Comité pour les Services Sans fil des Sourds du Canada, (DWCC-CSSSC), Canadian National Society of the Deaf-Blind (CNSDB), and Deafness Advocacy Association Nova Scotia (DAANS), collectively referred to as CAD-ASC et al.
In their joint letter, the four groups submitted that CAD-ASC et al. has not completed its intervention due to unforeseen circumstances and needs additional time to obtain the necessary internal approvals for its joint submission. As a result, CAD-ASC et al. requested an extension to submit its initial submission, from 19 December 2018 to either 4 or 7 January 2019.
Having regard for the above and the relatively short extensions being requested, we are of the view that this request is reasonable. Therefore, CAD-ASC et al.’s initial submission deadline is extended to 7 January 2019.
A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.
