These rules and other documents may be amended from time to time and any changes will be posted to this page.


Rules for Appeals

These rules of practice and procedure are to be followed during the appeal process. Any question of procedure that arises during a hearing and is not provided for in these rules will be decided by the Panel Chair.

The Administrative Tribunals Act (section 11) allows the CCALAB to establish rules respecting practice and procedure to facilitate the just and timely resolution of matters before it.

Participants Code of Conduct

Participants Code of Conduct

This Code clearly explains the rights and responsibilities of those appearing before the CCALAB, to ensure that appeals proceed fairly, efficiently, and accessibly. The Code also describes steps that the CCALAB can take where individuals fail to act appropriately during appeal processes. The Code is an important tool for the CCALAB to ensure a safe and supportive environment for all those who appear before it.
