1.3 What happens to the order being appealed?
Bringing an appeal will not automatically stay (stop) enforcement of the order made by the decision-maker below until the appeal has been decided. This means that the appellant must obey the order under appeal, unless they apply for and are granted a stay.
Stay: to postpone a proceeding or process of execution pending the outcome of an appeal
To stay other orders, the appellant may need to bring an application in chambers to a judge of the Court of Appeal. In other cases, the stay may need to be brought to the BC Supreme Court, depending on the type of order.
To bring a stay in the Court of Appeal, the appellant will file a notice of application (Form 4) and an application book that follows the paper or e-filing completion instructions for application books.
