Hearing Panel Decisions

A hearing panel may issue a decision in writing or orally at the end of the hearing. At the end of a settlement hearing, a hearing panel will often tell the parties whether it accepts or rejects the settlement. That is the decision. What follows is the written Reasons for Decision.

Publication and Enforceability

The Hearing Office issues a decision to the parties as soon as it is rendered by a hearing panel. Unless stated otherwise, a hearing panel’s decision is effective on the date it is dated.

All decisions are published on CIRO’s website (except decisions to reject a settlement agreement).

CIRO has the ability to enforce decisions and collect fines through courts in every province and territory of Canada.
