NSRLP has begun working with several administrative tribunals to assist them in adapting their systems and skills to the volume of self-represented litigants they see each year. Today’s podcast features leaders at two federal Tribunals who are committed to improving meaningful access for self-reps, who make up 35-70% of litigants appearing at their tribunals. Suzanne Gilbert is Deputy Chairperson of the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada. Suzanne was previously a Chair at the Ontario Social Justice Tribunal, working with the Child and Family Services Review Board and Custody Review Board. Paul Aterman is the Chair of the Social Security Tribunal, which hears appeals from decisions on the Employment Insurance Act, the Canada Pension Plan, and the Old Age Security Act. Paul is a lawyer with extensive administrative justice experience in human rights, immigration and refugee matters and workers' compensation. He is also a member of the Measurement Working Group of Access to Justice BC, a network of justice sector organizations and individuals dedicated to improving access to justice.
