Filing an application for review

Applications for reviews of decisions under the Social Assistance Program and the Social Solidarity Program as well as claims issued by Emploi-Québec under specific programs or the Youth Alternative Program must be filed in writing using the Application for review form. Link to external site.

When you print out the document, one copy of the Guide section (pages 1 and 2) will print out but 2 copies of the Form section (Application for review) will print out: one copy is for the CLE or office that rendered the decision (pages 3 and 4) and the other copy is for the applicant (pages 5 and 6). If you prefer, you can simply choose which pages to print out by selecting them in the printing function.

For decisions under the Québec Parental Insurance Plan, you must complete the Application for review – Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) form (PDF, 93 KB), which is also available at local employment centres (CLE) and review offices, or by contacting the RQAP Centre de service à la clientèle at the following numbers:

  • North America, toll-free: 1-888-610-7727
  • Overseas: 1-418-643-7246 (Charges apply)

You can also file an application for review in writing, clearly identifying the decision you are contesting. You can enclose any documents that you feel will be useful in supporting your application. If you wish, you can also request an interview in order to express your point of view.

Deadline for filing your application for review

You have 90 days from the date you receive the notice of decision to file your application for review. If your application is not filed within this period, it will be turned down unless you can show that you were unable to act sooner for reasons beyond your control.

Where do I send my application for review?

For your review application to be processed as quickly as possible, it is important to send it directly to the office that handed down the decision you are contesting.

If you need help completing your application for review, MTESS employees are available to assist you.
