The Administrative Penalty Tribunal conducts its hearings via remote access and in person.  If you require an in person hearing or accommodation, contact the Administrative Penalty Tribunal office.

If you’ve disputed a parking violation with a Screening Officer and were unsatisfied with the decision, you may, within 15 days, request a review of that decision before an Administrative Penalty Tribunal Hearing Officer. Hearing Officers have the authority to affirm, vary or cancel the decision of a Screening Officer and extend time. The hearing officer’s decision is final and there is no further appeal.

The Tribunal is an independent adjudicative body consisting of 25 public panel members referred to as Hearing Officers. Hearing Officers are appointed by City Council and provide a second, independent, and final decision in a parking violation dispute. The tribunal is governed by the Statutory Powers Procedure Act, its own Rules of Practice and in accordance with Chapter 610 of the Toronto Municipal Code.

On July 3, 2018 the Administrative Penalty Tribunal moved to a permanent location: 40 Orchard View Blvd, Suite 253 Toronto, ON M4R 1B9

You may submit a request for a hearing online or request an in-person review through the online tool.
