The Electronic Submissions Form may be used to attach and e-file letters, submissions or other material (subject to size limits). It is not to be used to file Applications/Responses/Interventions, books of authority/documents or membership evidence.

Click here for E-Filing FAQs and the Filing Guide. In particular, see the information on the use of different 'print' buttons in the forms.

Quick Overview of Phase 1 forms:

  • You must have an internet connection, a valid email address and up-to-date Adobe Acrobat in order to submit your form online. You may download the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader from the following website: https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
  • Forms may be e-filed by using the SUBMIT button at the end of the form.
  • Forms are fillable online and may be saved and printed at any time. Use the Save or Print Form buttons on the form.
  • When e-filing, documents can be attached to the forms, subject to a size limit.
  • The Applicant is no longer required to deliver a blank response form or Information Bulletin to the other parties.
  • Signatures are not required on these forms.
  • If a form is e-filed, a confirmation email will be sent upon receipt by the Board.
  • The e-filing system is not encrypted nor is it mandatory. Accordingly, you may wish to consider filing your form and any documents by another method permitted under the Board's Rules.
NOTE: For the period that A-33, A-34 and A-103 are part of Phase 1 of the E- Filing project, both the new forms and the older version of the forms will be accepted by the Board; however the older version of the form is no longer available on the website. The Board expects to phase in other forms over the next several months.

The Board is interested in receiving feedback on the new forms and the e-filing system. Please leave your comments here. You may do so anonymously. Comments will not be included in any Board file.

New Items of Interest

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Rule 9A.5, Information Bulletin No. 37 and Form C-58 have been changed to clarify that the Employer, when delivering its response, is not to deliver the Schedule A list of employees to the Union or any identified affected party.  If you have downloaded this material, please ensure that you download the corrected ones for use.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that revised Rules of Procedure (in light of amendments to the Labour Relations Act, 1995 arising from Bill 148) effective January 1, 2018 will be available on the Board’s homepage on, or before, December 22nd.

The revised rules include the following new rules and revisions: new Rule 9A [Employee Lists]; new Rule 9B [Certification—Specified Industry]; revisions to Rules 6.4, 6.9(a), 6.11 & 7.3(c) which incorporate Rules 9A and 9B; revisions to Rule 12 to reflect the amendments to s. 43 and 43.1 [first collective agreement by mediation-arbitration]; revisions to Rule 19 to reflect changes to s. 98 [Board’s interim order powers].

Finally, new forms will follow for applications under s. 6.1 [List of Employees], s. 15.1 [Review of Structure of Bargaining Units] and 15.2 [Specified Industry].

Please be advised that the Ontario Labour Relations Board will neither schedule nor hold hearings between December 21, 2017 and January 2, 2018 inclusive. Matters of an urgent nature, however, may be scheduled on an expedited basis, as determined by the Board, during this period.   More...
