Adjourning Your Appeal
Moving your hearing to a later date – Adjournments
If you cannot make it to the hearing or if you need more time to prepare you can ask us to move your hearing to a later date. To make this request you need to fill out the Appeal Adjournment Request (PDF) form and send it to the Tribunal. The Tribunal will then forward the form to the Ministry and Tribunal Chair for their consent.
If it is less than one business day before your scheduled hearing, you must go to the hearing. You can ask for the adjournment at the hearing. It is up to the panel whether they will agree to your request or not.
If you cannot make it to your hearing, or if you need more time to gather evidence, you can request an adjournment to have your hearing at a later date.
The Tribunal tries to reschedule the hearing within 15 business days.
