Appeals

If a producer feels the program rules were not correctly applied in the processing of his/her application, he/she may request an appeal.

Appeals

If you feel the program rules were not correctly applied in the processing of your application, you may request a review of the application by SCIC. If SCIC cannot resolve the concerns, the request may be referred to an appeal panel.

The Provincial Appeal Panel is an independent advisory committee of producers that hears disputes between customers and SCIC. Customers and staff both have the opportunity to present information to the Panel during the hearings held around the province. The Panel will review appeals in accordance with procedures established by SCIC and the agreements governing the program.

The Panel does not have the ability to create exceptions to program policies. All recommendations made by the Panel are considered non-binding and are reviewed by SCIC’s Board of Directors for a final decision.

Appeals must be submitted in writing to SCIC within 90 days of the date you were notified of the decision which is being appealed. The Appeal Submission Form can be used and should be accompanied by an appeal letter, which must clearly identify the nature of the appeal and provide sufficient information and documentation to substantiate the appeal.

Appeal requests can be sent to:

AgriStability Program Appeals
484 Prince William Drive
PO Box 3000
Melville, SK S0A 2P0
Fax: 1-888-728-0440
