What you should know.

There are more than 600 provincial boards, agencies and commissions in Ontario. Many of these are administrative tribunals, which have been granted the authority to make decisions under a statute or regulation. Tribunals are independent agencies responsible for making decisions and sometimes recommendations. There is a broad range of administrative tribunals dealing with a variety of subjects; for instance, some deal with regulatory and licensing issues, others with entitlement to compensation or benefits. Some tribunals are large organizations with many members, such as the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal; others are smaller, such as the Ontario Highway Transfer Board.

Some tribunals determine their own processes, and have created their own rules of procedure and codes of conduct for their members. These documents are generally available to the public.

Administrative tribunals are required to consider the evidence before them. They can make findings of credibility and accept the evidence of one witness over another.

Some administrative tribunals have the express right to reconsider their decisions. Where an individual is not happy with the tribunal’s decision, they may have a right to apply to have it reconsidered.

In some exceptional cases, a tribunal may not have the power to reconsider a decision unless a very serious error has occurred making the decision void.
