The IRB Moves Forward on Case-Related Information Management and Tracking

The IRB is in the process of implementing a vision and strategy called the Nova Continuous Improvement Program (NCIP) to ensure a secure, reliable, and efficient case-management tool for all four tribunals. The implementation of this vision will move the IRB from its current case-tracking capability to end-to-end electronic case management to support and advance the mandate of the IRB.

The IRB is following a five-year roadmap that includes several initiatives, which will be unveiled between now and 2021: electronic document management, self-service portal, reporting enhancements, electronic document sharing, business process automation, and scheduling tools. These are all aimed at improving functionality for our personnel, stakeholders and partners.

During this period of change, we are committed to providing information to make the transition as seamless as possible.
