Using POESS for document sharing"

  1. Open this website: parponlineevidencesubmission.gov.bc.ca. 
  2. Enter the Area, Jurisdiction, Roll Number and PIN from your 2020 Assessment Notice
  3. Before your hearing (2 days in advance is recommended), upload the files you want the Panel to see during your hearing. BC Assessment will also upload documents to POESS. You can view them before the hearing if you choose.
  4. During your hearing, open files as needed. Refer to files by their ID number or name so that everyone will know which one is being discussed.
For assistance, refer to the POESS User Guide.

The Panel and the BC Assessment appraiser will also have POESS open during the hearing so they can view the information you are talking about. 

Tips for a successful conference call:

  • Ideally, join the call in a quiet place, free from noise and distractions where you can talk on your phone and use your computer at the same time.
  • Allow the Panel Chair to manage the call, so that everyone gets a turn to speak uninterrupted.
  • State your name each time you speak so others on the call know who is talking.
  • If your phone has a mute button, and you are comfortable using it, it is helpful to mute your phone when you are not speaking to minimize background noise. Remember to unmute when you want to speak again. If you do not have a mute button, you can press *6 to mute your line. When you need to speak, press *6 again to unmute.
  • At some point, the Panel will mute their phone so they can discuss and make a decision. During this time you will not hear the Panel speaking but the Panel can still hear you. Stay on the line and do not hang up until the Panel Chair brings the hearing to a close.
