Rules, Practice Directions and Guidelines


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

The LTB-specific rules were revised on December 1, 2020.

Practice Directions

Practice directions support the rules 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.

Interpretation Guidelines

Interpretation guidelines explain how the LTB might deal with an issue in an application.
