Appeal Forms Improvements

*NEW*

The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) is improving its appeal forms and related municipal submission forms.  The improvements to these forms are intended to improve our stakeholders’ ability to complete the form by providing helpful and concise information in an accessible format.

Improvements include:

  • A fillable PDF format for easier online completion.
  • Embedded links to helpful information, such as applicable legislation, the OMB website and OMB fee schedule.
  • Forms will provide expanded appeal type options such as heritage appeals, ward boundary and other matters.
  • Multiple municipal submission forms are now simplified into a single form with associated referral checklists.

Printing the forms – In order to print a blank copy of the form, click the ‘Print Blank Form’ button that is available on the top of the first page of the form.   Please do not select ‘Print’ on your computer as this may result in loss of some information within the form.

Fees

Include your filing fee, paid by certified cheque or money order made out to the “Minister of Finance.” For OMB fees please see the OMB Fee Schedule.

Please Note: Toronto Local Appeal Body
On March 29, 2017, Toronto City Council passed Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 142 creating the Toronto Local Appeal Body (TLAB) with an effective date of May 3, 2017. This means that starting May 3, 2017, most minor variance and consent appeals from the Toronto Committee of Adjustment will go to the TLAB instead of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).All appeals must still be filed with the Secretary Treasurer of the Committee of Adjustment by the deadline noted on the Notice of Decision.

For more information regarding TLAB, please visit their website.

For assistance, please call (416) 212-6349 or toll free 1-866-448-2248.
