The Ontario Municipal Board

The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) is a provincial tribunal providing an independent public forum to hear disputes under various land use planning statutes. In particular, the OMB hears appeals of decisions made by public bodies such as:

  • municipal councils
  • committees of adjustment
  • land division committees
  • the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing

Different types of matters have different procedural requirements and timelines for appealing or requesting a hearing. It is always advisable to consult with a municipal lawyer prior to proceeding with a hearing, and to have a lawyer represent you at the OMB.
