To ensure that parties and interveners are able to understand the appeal process as well as their roles and responsibilities in the process, the Tribunal has prepared a number of Information Sheets.
These Information Sheets deal with specific topics and specific stages of the appeal process, and fill in some of the details about certain Tribunal practices and policies which may not be set out in the legislation or the Rules. However, the Information Sheets are not a substitute for the legislation or the Rules.
Additional topics may be added to this site from time to time.
