Effective February 1, 2021, the Child and Family Services Review Board (CFSRB) has a new Practice Direction on Scheduling Pre-Hearing/Mediations and Hearings, Rescheduling Requests, and Adjournment Requests.

The practice direction outlines the CFSRB’s scheduling, rescheduling, and adjournment processes, and provides guidance about what the CFSRB expects of parties and in turn what parties can expect of the CFSRB.

A Pre-hearing/Mediation will take place on the date and time contained in the Notice of Pre-Hearing, unless the CFSRB agrees to change the date or time.

Hearing dates are usually set in consultation with the parties and adjournment requests will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.

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