Rules and Practice Directions


There are two parts to the rules that govern the procedures of the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO). Part I is the Social Justice Tribunals Ontario (SJTO) Common Rules and Part II is the HRTO specific rules. Both parts should be read together.

Practice Directions

Practice directions support the rules of procedure and provide guidance about what the tribunal expects of the parties and what the parties can expect of the tribunal. They help parties to understand the rules.
