Tribunals are set up to resolve disputes about specific topics. For this reason, tribunals follow their own set of rules and procedures. The rules and procedures are often different than those of the courts, which follow the same standard set of rules that govern all court proceedings. To get started, search the BC Admin Law Directory and select the suitable tribunal or agency to find out what process you need to follow.
The first step is generally to resolve the dispute prior to going before a tribunal. Many things will happen before an adjudicator makes a decision or hears your case. Most tribunals take steps to try to resolve your dispute or determine your rights as quickly as possible.
