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. Most minor variance and consent appeals from the Toronto Committee of Adjustment will go to the TLAB instead of the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT). 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.
