Appeal of a Parole Board of Canada Decision

Survey on Accessibility

The Parole Board of Canada (PBC) is conducting a survey to seek the feedback of Canadians who have previously accessed our programs and services, on their level of accessibility. Our goal is to identify barriers to accessibility and be more responsive to the needs of people with a disability. Take the survey! You may also call the PBC’s Accessibility Survey Line at 1-833-541-3063, as an alternate way to complete the survey.

An offender, or a person acting on their behalf, may appeal a Board decision by sending a completed "Appeal of PBC Decision" form, along with a written notice stating the grounds for the appeal (as well as supporting documents) within two *(2) months after the decision of the Board. The appeal process begins when the initial appeal submission is received. The appeal is conducted by way of a file review.

*Please note that the time limit to submit an appeal has been temporarily extended from two (2) to three (3) months in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
