Court Decisions

Under the Agricultural Operation Practices Act (AOPA), the applicant and directly affected parties may apply to the Court of Appeal to appeal a decision issued by the NRCB Board, following a Board review of an approval officer decision. The appeal may only address questions of law or jurisdiction. The court must first grant leave to appeal.

Confined feeding operators may appeal an NRCB Board decision on an enforcement order or grandfathering determination to the Court of Queen’s Bench.
