64. Every person who believes he has been wronged by a decision rendered by a functionary designated under subsection 4 of section 63 may apply to a review board established under subsection 5 of the said section to have the decision reviewed. The person shall briefly set out the main grounds on which it is based and the object of the decision to which it pertains. A copy of the application shall be notified to the Attorney General by the review board.
The application shall be made in writing to the review board within 30 days of notification of the decision, if the decision regards the right to an indemnity or the quantum of an indemnity, or within 90 days of notification of the decision, if the decision regards the degree of impairment of earning capacity.
A review board may allow a person to act after the expiry of the delays fixed in the preceding paragraph if that person shows that it was in fact impossible for him to act sooner.
After giving the applicant and the Attorney General the opportunity to present observations, the review board may confirm, quash or vary the decision and, if appropriate, make the decision which, in its opinion, should have been made.
The decision must be in writing, contain reasons and be notified to the applicant and to the Attorney General and must mention that the decision may be contested before the Administrative Tribunal of Québec and the time limit for doing so.
