Environmental Review Tribunal

The Environmental Review Tribunal is an administrative tribunal that holds hearings and issues decisions, reports and recommendations respecting appeals under the following statutes: Clean Water Act; Consolidated Hearings Act; Environmental Assessment Act; Environmental Bill of Rights; Environmental Protection Act; Niagara Escarpment Planning and Development Act (NEPDA); Nutrient Management Act; Ontario Water Resources Act; Pesticides Act; Safe Drinking Water Act; and the Toxics Reduction Act. The Environmental Review Tribunal also hears appeals under the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Act and the Greenbelt Act. Effective advocacy before the Environmental Review Tribunal requires experience, administrative law expertise, and an appreciation of the Tribunal’s regulatory framework. It also requires working effectively with Tribunal adjudicators, mediators, and investigators. Clients have a right to fairness which involves some degree of input in decision-making and the right to an impartial and independent decision maker. The importance of achieving success at the Environmental Review Tribunal cannot be overstated as the opportunity for judicial review is limited.
