Please note that the Board is not an evidence seeking body. It relies on the written evidence presented, as well as verbal submissions at the hearing, as the basis for their decision. Therefore, it is critical that persons appearing before the Board ensure that sufficient evidence is presented to support their respective positions.
Listed below are some suggestions that will assist you in making a presentation to the LCSAB:
- At the beginning of your presentation introduce yourself for the record and state your position (in favour of the appeal).
- Introduce your witnesses (at this time the Chair will ask the witnesses to be excluded from the hearing. They will be called when it is their turn to speak.)
- Speak to the Chair or through the Chair.
- If you wish to have materials distributed to the Board, advise the Chair at the beginning of your presentation. Ten copies of your materials will be required.
- Stick to the issues relevant to the Board and their jurisdiction.
- Present your opinion regarding any errors in fact or interpretation.
Note: Once you complete your presentation, leave a copy of your written presentation and any materials that you presented to the Board.
