Tribunals Ontario’s New Policy for Hearings

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, Tribunals Ontario is taking action to safeguard the health and well-being of front-line workers and Ontarians, while continuing to ensure access to justice.

Effective today, Tribunals Ontario is implementing a new policy to postpone in-person hearings and reschedule to a later date. Where feasible, alternative hearing options such as written and telephone hearings will be considered to minimize disruption to hearings across the organization. In addition, all front-line counter services will be closed as of Monday March 16 until further notice.

Provincial budget postponed; new legislation coming to help workers affected by COVID-19 measures

Ontario Finance Minister Rod Phillips also said that instead of tabling the 2020 budget, which was set to be released next week, he will put out a fiscal update that is as “current as possible” and which includes a “realistic one-year outlook” given the present circumstances.

“In terms of a full budget, our plan would be by the fall at the latest to release that,” said Phillips.
