Sean Weir, Executive Chair of Tribunals Ontario issued the following leadership announcement:

“Karen Restoule has advised me of her intent to resign as Alternate Executive Chair, and Associate Chair of the Landlord and Tenant Board, Child And Family Services Review Board, Custody Review Board, and Ontario Special Education Tribunals. Her last day will be January 12, 2022.

Over several years, Karen has made a significant contribution to Ontario’s adjudicative tribunals. She has led an ambitious agenda of transforming tribunals to be inclusive, accessible, and modern. She had a pivotal role in supporting our response to the pandemic and ensuring access to justice during a challenging time.

Karen’s departure will leave several significant positions to be filled in the leadership of Tribunals Ontario, particularly as Karen was just re-appointed in October as the Associate Chair of the Landlord and Tenant Board for a five-year term.

On behalf of Tribunals Ontario, I want to congratulate and thank Karen for her outstanding contributions to public service and wishing her the very best in the future.

Karen will continue her duties until her departure. The position for Associate Chair will be posted immediately on Public Appointments Secretariat.”
