About

Tribunal Watch Ontario is a group of people with a deep concern for the integrity of Ontario’s system of tribunal justice.  Many of us have current or recent experience as members, vice-chairs, associate chairs or chairs of Ontario adjudicative tribunals or as advocates appearing before these tribunals.  Their clients and thousands of other Ontarians depend on those tribunals for the vindication of their rights.  We have come together in an effort to marshal our collective experience towards optimizing the fairness, independence, impartiality, competence and efficiency of the tribunal justice system, through non-partisan advocacy on behalf of that system.

Our intention is to bring the present crisis in Ontario’s adjudicative tribunals to the attention of the Government and the public and to continue to monitor developments as they occur. To become involved, either publicly or anonymously, please contact info@tribunalwatch.ca
