Right to Review Participation

Appeals, in writing, to decisions can be made to Destination Canada who will appoint three Committee members to review the decision.
The number of requested appointments and total appointments from the previous year’s Rendez-vous Canada are determining factors for continued participation in Rendez-vous Canada. TIAC, Destination Canada and Provincial/Territorial Representatives reserve the right to establish performance thresholds as a method of managing access to participation in Rendez-vous Canada.
As part of the registration process, all participants must agree to adhere to the Policies and Procedures of Rendez-vous Canada.
