1. The Administrative Labour Tribunal is established.
The function of the Tribunal is to make determinations in matters brought under sections 5 to 8 of this Act. Unless otherwise provided by law, the Tribunal exercises its jurisdiction to the exclusion of any other tribunal or adjudicative body.
The Tribunal is also responsible for ensuring the efficient and diligent application of the Labour Code (chapter C-27) and exercising the other functions assigned to it by the Code or any other Act.
In this Act, unless the context indicates otherwise, the word “matters” includes any request, application, petition, complaint, contestation or motion and any other proceeding under the Tribunal’s jurisdiction.
