Effective immediately, and in light of current public health and government information, the Ontario Labour Relations Board has revised its operations.

The Board’s front-line reception area is closed to the public. The Board’s mailroom is closed. In accordance with the Notice to Community Dated July 21, 2020, unless an in person, written or telephone hearing is directed by the Board, all Board hearings (including previously scheduled hearings) will be conducted by video conference. New Notices of Hearing by video conference will be issued to replace previously used Notices of Hearings for in person hearings.

The Board continues to accept applications/ responses/ interventions and other submissions and materials. However, all such filings must be made electronically, or they will not be accepted:
  • All Board forms and other submissions and material must be filed through the Board’s e-filing process, not regular email, courier, hand delivery or fax.
  • Certification and termination applications/responses/ interventions may be electronically filed using the Form A-108 (electronic submissions form).
  • The Board’s Form A-108 should not be used to file other forms, which can already be e-filed on their own.
  • E-filing also applies to correspondence and submissions filed with respect to matters currently before the Board.
Check the notices on the Board’s website regularly, including with respect to the requirements for filing applications with the Board, because they may update and revise previous requirements.

Specifically, please note that, given the current circumstances, the requirements set out in the Board’s notices on the website will supersede any instructions on e-forms, and in particular with respect to the use of email. There is a delay, outside of the Board’s control, in amending these forms and current changes may not be reflected.
