British Columbia Review Board

The British Columbia Review Board is an independent tribunal established by the Criminal Code of Canada under section 672.38 (1).

The Review Board has ongoing jurisdiction to hold hearings to make and review dispositions (orders) for any accused where a court has rendered a verdict of not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder (NCRMD) or unfit to stand trial (UST).

The Review Board must take into account the safety of the public, which is the paramount consideration, the mental condition of the accused, the reintegration of the accused into society, and the other needs of the accused.
