Parole Board of Canada

During this session, we will explore the results of a survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on federal administrative tribunals conducted by the Council of Federal Tribunal Chairs (CFTC). We will also see how the Parole Board of Canada was successful in addressing some of the challenges created by the pandemic, notably in regard to dealing with populations with particular needs. Attendees are invited to turn on their camera and audio as this session will not be recorded.

  • Addressing challenges when adapting to virtual hearing environments
  • Accommodate the needs and characteristics of certain populations
  • Overcoming hurdles encountered in facilitating the participation of other stakeholders, for example victims and assistants, to have them engage meaningfully in a virtual parole review process, will be discussed.
