Contesting a review decisions

If you are dissatisfied with a review decision, you can contest it before the Tribunal administratif du Québec (TAQ)Link to external site., which rules on disputes concerning administrative decisions made by the public service, notably government departments, boards, commissions, municipalities, and healthcare establishments.

Review decisions must be contested within 60 days of receiving the letter informing you of the decision.

However, appeals to TAQ contesting a refusal to study your review application on the grounds that it was filed after the deadline must be filed within 15 days of receipt of the letter informing you of the decision. This provision does not apply if you are contesting a decision handed down under the Québec Parental Insurance plan.

In addition, if the review decision is not handed down within 90 days of the date your application for review was received, or the date you expressed your point of view, or the date you provided your documents, if you requested time to do so, you can contest the review decision directly to TAQ.

TAQ decisions are final and are not subject to appeal.
