The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB) has made changes to its Rules of Procedure. Among other changes, the amended rules:

  • incorporate Social Justice Tribunals Ontario’s Common Rules into the CICB Rules
  • allow youth applications to be filed by a legal representative, a litigation guardian, or the youth themselves
  • stipulate that the CICB will record its hearings

The CICB has also developed a new Practice Direction on Recording Proceedings to support rule 7.4: “Recording”.

See all the changes by reading the amended CICB rules: 1.8, 2.2.1, 2.4, 2.10, 2.14, 7.4 and the SJTO Common Rules of Procedure.

The rule changes and the new practice direction are intended to make CICB processes more accessible and transparent. Both documents come into effect on August 1, 2017.
