Owners and developers of land, among others, are often in need of professional advocacy assistance in matters involving planning, permits, approvals, among other things. With so many statutes and regulations applicable to land use, choosing experienced legal help is wise.

The recently (2021) established Ontario Land Tribunal, established per the Ontario Land Tribunal Act, 2021, S.O. 2021, Chapter 4, Schedule 6, hears and decides matters related to land use planning, expropriation, environmental protection, heritage protection, land valuation, mining, and other matters.  The Ontario Land Tribunal amalgamates the functions of five, previously separate, tribunals.

Environmental matters before the Ontario Land Tribunal typically relate to appeals of the decision by the Director of the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks to issue, alter, revoke, cancel or close an order, approval, licence, permit, registration or account under the Clean Water Act, 2006, S.O. 2006, Chapter 22, the Environmental Protection Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. E.19, the Nutrient Management Act, 2002, S.O. 2002, Chapter 4, the Ontario Water Resources Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. O.40, the Pesticides Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.11, the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016, S.O. 2016, Chapter 12, Schedule 1, the Safe Drinking Water Act, 2002, S.O. 2002, Chapter 32, the Toxics Reduction Act, 2009, S.O. 2009, Chapter 19, and the Waste Diversion Transition Act, 2016, S.O. 2016, Chapter 12, Schedule 2.

Issues dealt with by the Ontario Land Tribunal may include:

  • Official Plans
  • Zoning Bylaws
  • Plans of Subdivision
  • Consents to Convey Land
  • Minor Variances From Local Bylaws
  • Development Charges
  • Aggregate Licences
