A Guide to the Social Security Tribunal

This Guide has been produced by Disability Alliance BC and the Community Legal Assistance Society. It is designed to help people who are representing themselves with Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D) appeals to the Social Security Tribunal (the “Tribunal”). Representatives may also find the Guide helpful if they have clients with appeals before the Tribunal.


Note: Although this guide has been prepared by an organization in British Columbia, it concerns the CPP-D, a federal program, and the information in it applies across Canada.
