The Tribunals Ontario Mediation and Hearing Centre at 15 Grosvenor St., Toronto, opened its doors to the public for the first time on Monday, July 29.
The first of the Tribunals Ontario boards and tribunals to begin holding hearings at the new location was the Landlord and Tenant Board from our Social Justice Division.
The new facility offers an improved experience for the public with an information desk, natural light in many hearing rooms and equipment for teleconference hearings. Other features include a hearing room ventilated for smudging, barrier-free washrooms and hallways, and slip-resistant stairs. Public Wi-Fi will be available later in August.
In the weeks ahead, more boards and tribunals will begin hearings at the Tribunals Ontario Mediation and Hearing Centre.
On Tuesday, August 6, four of five Safety, Licensing Appeals and Standards (SLASD) tribunals will begin holding hearings and mediations at the new location: Licence Appeal Tribunal, Animal Care Review Board, Fire Safety Commission, and the Ontario Civilian Police Commission. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Board from the Social Justice Division will also be moving its hearings and mediations to the new location on August 6.
On October 1, the Social Benefits Tribunal will move its hearings and mediations to 15 Grosvenor St.
If you visit us in the next week or two, you may see we are putting the finishing touches on the ground floor. We ask for your understanding and patience as we complete the work on the new facility.
