- The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) is experiencing a shortage of adjudicators (members) which is affecting the LTB’s ability to meet its service standards. As a result, you may experience a longer than usual number of days before a hearing can take place. All parties appearing before the LTB are encouraged to take a close look at the Notice of Hearing as your hearing details (location of your hearing or how your hearing will be conducted) may differ from previous hearings. The LTB continues to be committed to providing fair, effective and timely dispute resolution.
