New Regulation respecting the procedure of the Administrative Tribunal of Québec

On February 11th 2020, the new Regulation respecting the procedure of the Administrative Tribunal of Québec (Regulation) came into force.

The main changes are the following:

  • The principle of proportionality is now included in the Regulation. This means that proceedings must be suited to the nature and the complexity of a matter.
  • When your hearing date is set, your lawyer cannot stop representing you without the authorization of the Tribunal.
  • The new rules regarding technology-based documents are tailored to the Tribunal’s reality. For example, a technology-based document can be an e-mail, a recording or a video.
  • If you send a document by mail, it is presumed to be filed with the Tribunal on the day indicated on the postal stamp.
     

The new Regulation also changes specific delays for sending documents to the Tribunal and to the other participants to the hearing.

The entire text of the Regulation can be found here.
