ACT NOW: Demand a fair and just LTB

Published on May 4, 2023

The Ombudsman's report lays out what we already knew – the Tribunal is failing in its duty to provide fast and fair access to justice and the Ford government is letting it happen. 

Renters are waiting years just to get a hearing date. The move to online-only hearings has hurt people without good internet access, people whose first language isn't English, and/or seniors because they can't participate fairly.

The report provides a clear roadmap, and it is this government’s responsibility to carefully consider its findings, and urgently make sure that Ontarians are no longer being denied access to justice and fairness.

Add your name below to join our call on the Ford government to: commit to a no-more-than-30-day waiting period for a hearing, provide an in-person hearing if one is requested, and provide a clear and fully funded plan to ensure the Ombudsman's 61 recommendations are implemented quickly.
