As part of the More Homes, More Choice Act (Bill 108), the Ontario government intends to bring back the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).
Returning to the OMB takes us back to an expensive, time consuming dispute resolution process that was difficult for citizens to take part in. But this time citizens voices will be highly limited, making it even more difficult for the public to participate. The OMB was dismantled after an extensive 2-year public review and replaced with the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPATs). Now the Ontario government is bringing it back at the request of developers with no input at all from the public.
Your message will be sent to your local MPP and CC'd to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing
