How to Submit Your Evidence

If you have a legal representative

If you have a legal representative, they will normally send documents on your behalf. Make sure you give your legal representative enough time to review the evidence. Do not submit evidence directly to the IRB-RPD without discussing it with your legal representative, so that they can assist you in deciding which documents are important to the success of your case.

If you do not have a legal representative

Follow the steps below: 

  • Make sure all of your documents are on  8.5 x 11 inch, letter-size paper. Typed documents must be at least size 12 font.
  • Put your documents together and number the pages from first to last.
  • Add a cover page with your name and address, the date, your IRB-RPD file number, a list of all your documents and their page numbers.
  • Make a copy of your document package.  Keep the original. If a Minister’s Counsel is participating in your hearing, make an additional copy.

Submit one copy of your document package to the IRB-RPD in your region:
