Contesting a review decision

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

Your appeal with the TAQ must be filed within 60 days of receiving the letter informing you of the review decision.

However, appeals submitted to the TAQ in order to contest the fact that we refused to study your application for review because 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 we do not render a review decision within 90 days of the date we received your application for review, or of the date you expressed your point of view, or of the date you provided your documents (if you requested time to do so), you can appeal the original decision directly to the TAQ.

TAQ decisions are final and are not subject to appeal
