Bill 139 in force as of April 3, 2018

Along with modifications to the Planning Act and the Conservation Authorities Act, Bill 139 repealed the Ontario Municipal Board Act and replaced it with the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal Act, 2017.  The administrative body that was first established in 1906 as the Ontario Railway and Municipal Board, and continued in 1932 as the Ontario Municipal Board, is continued as of April 3, 2018 as the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal. It is key that planners and municipal law practitioners come to full grips with the latest developments so as to advise their stakeholders and clients.
