Decision Review

The Decision Review Guidelines give eligible program applicants an opportunity to request a review of a decision if they feel that their application for the Professional Development Initiative (PDI), Remote Nursing Program or Targeted Academic Support Program (TASP) was not assessed in accordance with program guidelines.

These guidelines and procedures only apply to an unsuccessful applicant who applied to one of the applicable programs and who is eligible for consideration as a current employee of the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS), Northwest Territories Health and Social Services Authority (NTHSSA), Hay River Health and Social Services Authority (HRHSSA) and Tłı̨cho Community Services Agency under the applicable program guidelines.

Please note that reviews are focused on assessing whether or not program guidelines were applied correctly. Where the reason for denial is related to lack of available funds, the decision cannot be overturned.
