The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) is committed to restoring the LTB’s reputation
The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) is committed to restoring the LTB’s reputation as a quasi-judicial tribunal, focusing on dispute resolution under the law and ensuring that the LTB’s dispute resolution services are accessible and meet the standards of procedural fairness.
Last year, the LTB began meeting regularly with stakeholders and receiving feedback on the operational changes taking place at the LTB in response to the pandemic. This engagement has allowed us to gain insight into the challenges faced by the parties who come before us.
We heard that the shift towards a provincial scheduling model created difficulties for some tenant and landlord representatives to provide representation for their clients. We have reviewed your feedback and assessed changes to our scheduling model while ensuring access to justice and procedural fairness.
We are pleased to announce that starting January 18, hearing blocks are being heard on a regional basis except for urgent matters, reviews and motions. This means each region will be assigned dedicated days of the week to assist representatives in providing services to landlords and tenants. For example:
Hearing Block Types
L2 and TT Merits
The LTB remains committed to updating you about operational planning and is appreciative of your patience and cooperation as we continue to adjust our operations in response to the ongoing pandemic. We also continue to review the implications of the moratorium and will provide you with an update soon.
