Answer

As of March 19, 2020, all in-person hearings at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) were postponed. Counter services are also closed for now.

Hearings are being held by telephone, video conference, or in writing. If you had a date for an in-person hearing, the LTB should contact you about a new date. If you’re represented by a lawyer or paralegal, make sure to tell them right away if the LTB contacts you.

If you get a notice, email, or message about an LTB hearing and you don’t have a lawyer, make a note of your hearing date and the LTB file number. Then try to get legal help right away. You can contact your local community legal clinic. You can also sign up for tenant duty counsel advice at www.tdc.acto.ca or by calling 1-877-374-0391.

The LTB may change the way they hold hearings in the future. You can check the LTB’s website for the latest news.
