As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, Tribunals Ontario is taking action to safeguard the health and well-being of all Ontarians, while continuing to ensure access to justice. The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) has reviewed the appropriate approach to conducting hearings and until further notice the LTB is suspending:

  • All hearings related to eviction applications, unless the matter relates to an urgent issue such as an illegal act or serious impairment of safety; and
  • The issuance of eviction orders, unless the matter relates to an urgent issue such as an illegal act or serious impairment of safety.

Hearings related to eviction applications will not be scheduled at this time.

All incoming applications will continue to be processed. Hearings for matters not relating to evictions will proceed by the most appropriate means (telephone or written hearing) and orders for these matters will be issued.

Tribunals Ontario is actively monitoring COVID-19 developments and will update our policies based on advice from the Ministry of Health, Chief Medical Officer of Health and public health officials to protect Ontarians.
