Before appealing to the Tribunal, you must go through the internal appeals process at the Board and receive a final decision of a hearing officer. Read more about the process in the Appeals Section, or download the Notice of Appeal form (PDF) (French version). Completed forms should be returned to the Tribunal with a copy of the hearing officer's decision.
