Prepare for a Hearing

How to Prepare for a Hearing before the Hospital Appeal Board

A key step in getting ready for a hearing is to prepare your Statement of Points.  This is a brief and concise written outline of your main points and arguments on the appeal.  The HAB usually requires all parties to submit a Statement of Points to the Board and all participants at least seven days in advance of the hearing.

A hearing before the HAB may be conducted in-person, in writing, by telephone, or by video-conference.  The parties will be consulted prior to the Board deciding on the style of hearing.

Below you will find some general information to assist you in preparing for a hearing before the HAB.

The Justice Education Society has prepared the following information sheets and videos to help people avoid going to a tribunal hearing, and may also be useful to you in appearing before a tribunal.
