Appeals Process

Athletes who have not been nominated and who wish to appeal this decision can do so by following the process below. Issues related to the specific content or selection requirements contained in the Alpine Ontario Alpin Selection Criteria are not grounds for an appeal and should therefore be discussed directly with the leadership of AOA.

1. Before an athlete can file a Notice of Appeal, they must ask AOA for reasons explaining why they were not nominated for an Ontario Card. Deadline: April 16, 2020
2. AOA will respond to the athlete in writing by April 17, 2020

If the athlete is not satisfied with the AOA response, the athlete may submit a Notice of Appeal, found here. A Notice of Appeal will only be accepted from the athlete or their parent/guardian on the MHSTCI-provided template (typed or hand-printed, no hand-written entries).
NEW: Due to COVID-19, all staff are working remotely, and Appeal submissions will only be accepted via email at [email protected] 

One appeal cannot be written on behalf of multiple athletes. The Notice of Appeal email must be received by MHSTCI by noon on April 22, 2020.
