To contest a decision

If a person is dissatisfied with a decision we have rendered concerning Family Allowance, he or she can file an application for review. The Act provides for a maximum of 90 days from the date on which we rendered our decision.

To file an application for review, the person must complete an Application for Review form. The person filing the application can, if applicable, provide additional proof on which the Social Insurance Number or client number must appear. The documents can be sent to us online or mailed to the following address:


Service de la révision

Case postale 7777
Québec (Québec) G1K 7T4


If we have not rendered a decision within 90 days after receiving an application for review (or 180 days if we had to ask for additional information), an appeal can be lodged with the Administrative Tribunal of Québec (TAQ) without waiting for our review decision.

To contest our review decision...

If a person does not agree with the new decision, he or she has 60 days to lodge an appeal with the Administrative Tribunal of Québec (TAQ), whose decisions are final and without appeal. A form for this purpose can be obtained by calling the Tribunal, or a person can simply write to the Tribunal.
