About the SBT
The Social Benefits Tribunal hears appeals from people who have either been refused social assistance or who receive social assistance but disagree with a decision that affects:
- their eligibility for assistance
- the amount of assistance they receive
- the benefits they receive
The SBT is one of the 13 tribunals that make up Tribunals Ontario.
