ELTO Tribunals

ELTO Tribunals

Environment and Land Tribunals Ontario (ELTO) brings together five Ontario tribunals and boards which adjudicate matters related to land use planning, environmental and heritage protection, property assessment, land valuation and other matters.

ELTO is the first cluster of tribunals created under the authority of the Adjudicative Tribunals Accountability, Governance, and Appointments Act, 2009. That Act permits the government to designate two or more adjudicative tribunals as a cluster if, in the opinion of the Lieutenant Governor in Council, the matters that the tribunals deal with are such that they can operate more effectively and efficiently as part of a cluster than alone.

The tribunals which comprise Environment and Land Tribunals Ontario are:


Assessment Review Board (ARB)

The ARB’s primary role is to adjudicate applications and appeals on property assessments, classifications and some tax matters.
