Meeting dates and deadlines - Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board

The Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board meets four times a year to consider certification applications and review requests to appeal refused export permits.

New certification applications, requests for redetermination, and supplementary information for applications on hold are all subject to the same deadline.

Please note: If a certification application is received before a meeting deadline, it does not guarantee that it will be considered by the Review Board at that meeting. Even when they are complete, complex applications may require additional processing time before they can be presented to the Review Board. Applicants will be notified ahead of time if additional information is required or if there are any processing delays.

Electronic submissions will be reviewed by the Secretariat if received by 11:59 p.m. (EST) on the deadline date.
