Extension of time

Canada (Superintendent of Bankruptcy) v. 407 ETR Concession Company Limited, 2012 ONCA 569 has a useful summary regarding when an extension of time will be allowed:

[39]       In my view, the extension of time ought to be granted.  It is well established that in deciding whether to extend the time to appeal or seek leave, the court will consider:
a)    whether the person formed an intention to appeal within the relevant period;
b)    the length of the delay and the explanation for the delay;
c)    any prejudice to the respondent;
d)    the merits of the appeal; and
e)    whether the justice of the case requires it.

See Rizzi v. Mavros, 2007 ONCA 350, 85 O.R. (3d) 401, at para. 16.
