On July 21, 2023, the Licence Appeal Tribunal (“LAT”) revised the Common Rules of Practice and Procedure and introduced the Licence Appeal Tribunal Rules (“LAT Rules”) which will come into effect beginning on August 21, 2023.
The Amendments to the LAT Rules, previously the Common Rules of Practice and Procedure, were a result of coordination by the stakeholder organizations, including CDL.
This bulletin provides information about how these changes impact parties with matters before the LAT and is intended as a guide only. Additional information is provided on the LAT website.
The Rules apply to any appeal commenced on or after August 21, 2023, and to any appeal commenced before August 21, 2023 for which the first notice of case conference is issued on or after August 21, 2023.
The preamble to many of the New Rules remains consistent with the original wording. However, there are key differences.
