Contribute to the administration of justice in a diverse legal environment

The Case Manager provides support for seven (7) independent adjudicative tribunals: the Community Care and Assisted Living Appeal Board, the Environmental Appeal Board, the Financial Services Tribunal, the Forest Appeals Commission, the Hospital Appeal Board, the Industry Training Appeal Board and the Oil and Gas Appeal Tribunal.

Each tribunal is governed by a different statute. They hear appeals from decisions made under twenty-two (22) different statutes and various associated regulations. The tribunals are supported by one administrative office which provides appeal registry services, legal advice, research support, systems support, financial/administrative services, and communication strategies throughout the province.

The Case Manager is responsible for processing and managing all appeals for all seven (7) tribunals from intake to appeal hearing to file closure. This position is unique due to the number of agencies it serves and the scope of knowledge and skills required to serve those agencies. The responsibilities include: initial jurisdictional assessment of the appeal; overseeing the intake, screening, processing and tracking of appeals; conducting case management conferences; analyzing the file and identifying preliminary issues and providing advice regarding operational and procedural issues; procedural decision-making; conducting informal Alternate Dispute Resolution ("ADR") and identifying cases amenable to formal ADR; hearing panel preparation; post-adjudication panel support; and file closure. This position is the primary contact for parties, legal representatives, panel members, court recorders, contractors for hearings, and the public, and also speaks at full Board meetings. The Case Manager often deals with highly emotional participants in confrontational situations.

The Case Manager operates with a high degree of autonomy in high-pressure, dynamic, politically sensitive and contentious environments, in which each agency must consider the legislative and common law (administrative justice) rights of the appellant, respondent, third parties and participants. The Case Manager works with sensitive, confidential and high profile matters in an appeal process that is subject to public scrutiny, review by the courts, and has a significant impact on the public perception of each tribunal. Essential for this position is: knowledge of administrative law principles as well as the governing legislation, directives, policies and guidelines for each of the seven tribunals; confidence; good judgement; excellent communication skills; tact; discretion; and respect for confidentiality.

This position provides functional supervision to the Appeals Clerk and the contracted hearing recording secretaries (court recorders).

This position reports to the Vice Chair, Service Delivery of the Environmental Appeal Board, which provides administrative support for the Forest Appeals Commission, Oil and Gas Appeal Tribunal, and to the Director of Supported Boards, who oversees administration of the Community Care and Assisted Living Appeal Board, Financial Services Tribunal, Hospital Appeal Board, and the Industry Training Appeal Board.
