Toronto Local Appeal Body
Starting May 3, 2017, most appeals from the Toronto Committee of Adjustments will go to the Toronto Local Appeal Body (TLAB) instead of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).

Further information on the Toronto Local Appeal Body can be found on the City of Toronto website.


The Ontario Municipal Board is an independent and impartial adjudicative tribunal. It is made up of a Chair, Vice-Chairs and Members. The Ontario government appoints all Board Members.

The OMB listens to the appeals and concerns of people, public bodies or corporations who object to the decisions of public or approval authorities such as local or regional councils, committees of adjustment, land division committees, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, or an expropriating authority. The Board holds public hearings throughout the province.

Some issues dealt with by the Board include:

  • Official Plans
  • Zoning bylaws
  • Plans of subdivision
  • Consents to convey land
  • Minor variances from local bylaws
  • Development charges
  • Aggregate licences
  • Compensation for expropriated land
  • Applications for gravel pit licences
