Effective April 1, 2021, the Child and Family Services Review Board (CFSRB) has a new Practice Direction on Communicating with the board.

The CFSRB’s new practice direction aligns with Tribunals Ontario’s digital-first approach and provides guidance on the CFSRB’s expectations regarding communications. Some highlights of this new practice direction include:

  • Where an applicant wishes to communicate by email with the CFSRB, consent must be provided in the appropriate field on CFSRB application forms.
  • The CFSRB will send documents to the parties by email or fax. Where a party has chosen to correspond by mail, the CFSRB will communicate with the party by mail.
  • A party who is represented must communicate with the CFSRB through their representative, and it is the representative’s responsibility to keep his or her client informed.

The CFSRB is committed to providing fair, effective and timely dispute resolution services to the people of Ontario.
