If you have submitted an application for a municipal licence, changes to an existing licence, or a renewal and you receive a refusal letter from Municipal Licensing & Standards (MLS), you are entitled to appeal the decision by completing the Request for Hearing form and returning it within 30 days to the MLS office:

East York Civic Centre,
Third Floor,
850 Coxwell Avenue,
Toronto, Ontario
M4C 5R1

Completing the application:

  • If you choose to retain a representative (solicitor/paralegal) to represent you at the hearing, include his/her name, address and phone number on the Request for Hearing form.
  • If you require an interpreter at the hearing, fill in the language you prefer on the Request for Hearing form. The City will provide the services of an interpreter free of charge at the hearing.

If you have received a letter from Municipal Licensing and Standards requesting you to appear before the Tribunal, you will be notified in writing by MLS.  An interpreter can be made available upon request.

The Toronto Licensing Tribunal will notify you of a Procedural Conference and/or a scheduled Hearing date.
