Appeals

If you feel that 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 your concerns, your request may be referred to an appeals committee. The appeals committee will review appeals in accordance with procedures established by SCIC, and the agreements governing the program.

The appeals committee does not have the ability to create exceptions to program policies, such as eligibility criteria or any other provisions included in the program guidelines, the Growing Forward agreement, or the Farm Income Protection Act. All recommendations made by the appeals committee are considered non-binding.

Appeals must be submitted in writing to SCIC at:
AgriStability Program Appeals
484 Prince William Drive PO Box 3000
Melville SK S0A 2P0
Fax: 1-888-728-0440

You must submit your written request within 90 days from the date you were notified (in writing) of the decision you are appealing (e.g. 90 days from notification that your amendment request has not be accepted by SCIC). Appeal letters must clearly identify the nature of the appeal and provide sufficient information and documentation to substantiate the appeal. If you do not identify the nature of the appeal and/or provide sufficient information and documentation to substantiate your appeal by the date specified by SCIC, your appeal will not be forwarded to the appeals committee.

Appeal requests must be submitted using the Appeal Submission Form.
