All hearings are conducted under the rules of the Statutory Powers Procedure Act. A person who is appointed as a Director or Deputy Director under the pertinent legislation will adjudicate your hearing. An Operations Liaison/Intelligence Officer represents the Ministry at most hearings.
If a hearing names you as a party to a hearing, you will receive a notice to appear before the Director. The notice will tell you:
- the time and location of the hearing
- the Act and regulation under which the hearing is held
- the reasons that the hearing is being called
