Marginal note:Suspension, etc., where contravention
  •  (1) Where the Minister decides to suspend or cancel a Canadian aviation document on the grounds that the holder of the document or the owner or operator of any aircraft, airport or other facility in respect of which the document was issued has contravened any provision of this Part or any regulation or order made under this Part, the Minister shall by personal service or by registered or certified mail sent to the holder, owner or operator, as the case may be, at his latest known address notify the holder, owner or operator of that decision and of the effective date of the suspension or cancellation, but no suspension or cancellation shall take effect earlier than the date that is thirty days after the notice under this subsection is served or sent.

  • Marginal note:Contents of notice

    (2) A notice under subsection (1) shall be in such form as the Governor in Council may by regulation prescribe and shall, in addition to any other information that may be so prescribed,

    • (a) indicate the provision of this Part or of the regulation or order made under this Part that the Minister believes has been contravened; and

    • (b) state the date, being thirty days after the notice is served or sent, on or before which and the address at which a request for a review of the decision of the Minister is to be filed in the event the holder of the document or the owner or operator concerned wishes to have the decision reviewed.

  • Marginal note:Request for review of Minister’s decision

    (3) Where the holder of a Canadian aviation document or the owner or operator of any aircraft, airport or other facility in respect of which a Canadian aviation document is issued who is affected by a decision of the Minister referred to in subsection (1) wishes to have the decision reviewed, he shall, on or before the date that is thirty days after the notice is served on or sent to him under that subsection or within such further time as the Tribunal, on application by the holder, owner or operator, may allow, in writing file with the Tribunal at the address set out in the notice a request for a review of the decision.

  • Marginal note:Request for review not a stay of suspension, etc.

    (4) A request for a review of the decision of the Minister under subsection (3) does not operate as a stay of the suspension or cancellation of the Canadian aviation document to which the decision relates, but where a request for a review has been filed with the Tribunal a member of the Tribunal assigned for the purpose may, subject to subsection (5), on application in writing by the holder of the document or the owner or operator affected by the decision, as the case may be, on such notice to the Minister as the member deems necessary, and after considering such representations by the holder, owner or operator and the Minister as they wish to make in that behalf, direct that the suspension or cancellation of the document be stayed until the review of the decision of the Minister has been concluded.

  • Marginal note:Exception re stay direction

    (5) No direction of a stay of a suspension or cancellation shall be made under subsection (4) where the member of the Tribunal considering the matter is of the opinion that the stay would result in a threat to aviation safety.

  • Marginal note:Appointment of review time

    (6) On receipt of a request filed in accordance with subsection (3), the Tribunal shall appoint a time and place for the review of the decision referred to in the request and in writing notify the Minister and the person who filed the request of the time and place so appointed.

  • Marginal note:Review procedure

    (7) At the time and place appointed under subsection (6) for the review of the decision, the member of the Tribunal assigned to conduct the review shall provide the Minister and the holder of the Canadian aviation document or the owner or operator affected by the decision, as the case may be, with an opportunity consistent with procedural fairness and natural justice to present evidence and make representations in relation to the suspension or cancellation under review.

  • Marginal note:Holder, etc., not compelled to testify

    (7.1) In a review under this section, a holder, owner or operator referred to in subsection (1) is not required, and shall not be compelled, to give any evidence or testimony in the matter.

  • Marginal note:Determination of Tribunal member

    (8) On a review under this section of a decision of the Minister to suspend or cancel a Canadian aviation document, the member of the Tribunal who conducts the review may determine the matter by confirming the Minister’s decision or substituting his or her own determination.
