The Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) hears and decides appeals and matters related
to land use planning, environmental and natural features and heritage protection,
land valuation, land compensation, municipal finance, and related matters.
The OLT was established in June 2021 as an amalgamation of the Board of
Negotiation under the Expropriations Act, the Conservation Review Board, the
Environmental Review Tribunal, the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal and the
Mining and Lands Tribunal. Previously, Ontario’s five land tribunals were part of a
cluster of tribunals known as Tribunals Ontario, and prior to that, the Environment
and Land Tribunals Ontario cluster.
