RE: Announcement on Provincewide Emergency Brake
Today, the provincial government announced it’s imposing a province wide emergency brake that will take effective Saturday, April 3, 2021, at 12:01 a.m. and in place for at least four weeks across the province.
At this time, the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) will continue to hold hearings for all types of applications and issue orders, including orders for evictions. This will help ensure that tenants and landlords seeking resolution from the LTB are provided access to justice with minimal service delays.
The LTB will continue to conduct hearings by videoconference, phone or in writing to protect the health and safety of Ontarians.
We continue to encourage landlords and tenants to work together to resolve their disputes during this challenging time.
The LTB is carefully monitoring the situation and operational changes, if any, will be posted to our website. Thank you for your ongoing patience and cooperation. We remain committed to providing fair, effective and timely access to justice.
