Longer Extensions Form
Under FIPPA subsection 15(1), a public body may extend the 30-day time limit to respond to an access application for up to an additional 30 days, or for a longer period if the ombudsman agrees. If the public body has determined that responding to the request will require more than a total of 60 days, the public body may ask the ombudsman for a longer extension by submitting this form.
Submissions made with less than three business days prior to the expiry of the public body's time limit for responding may not be considered. Submissions received after the public body's time limit has expired will not be considered.
