I can’t go to my eviction hearing. Can I change the hearing date?

The (LTB) expects you to be available and ready on the hearing date shown on your Notice of Hearing.

If you can't attend your hearing on the date the LTB set, there are steps you should take.

If you have a legal representative, let them know quickly and get their advice.

If you don't have a representative, you should first ask your landlord and all other named in the if they will agree to change the date. Then ask the LTB as soon as possible to reschedule the hearing.

The LTB might refuse to reschedule if the other parties don't agree. You will need to have a very good reason why you can't go ahead on the date the LTB has set.

If the LTB won't reschedule the hearing, you will have to go to the hearing. Or you can send someone to represent you. At the hearing, you or your representative can ask the to the hearing. This means asking the LTB to postpone the hearing that day and change it to another date.

But if the LTB member refuses to adjourn, the hearing will probably go ahead that day. It can happen even if you are not there or are not ready.
