Social Justice Tribunals Ontario(SJTO)

Social Justice Tribunals Ontario (SJTO) is a group of eight adjudicative tribunals that play an important role in the administration of justice in Ontario. Each year our these tribunals receive and resolve nearly 100,000 cases - providing fair, accessible dispute resolution to thousands of Ontarians.
The tribunals of the SJTO are: Child and Family Services Review Board, Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, Custody Review Board, Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, Landlord and Tenant Board, Ontario Special Education (English) Tribunal, Ontario Special Education (French) Tribunal and Social Benefits Tribunal.
Think results.  We recommend you seek the assistance of a qualified lawyer if your matter deals with any of the following:
  • Landlords and tenant disputes
  • Appeals seeking social assistance and complaints from those who feel the service they received from children’s aid societies has been unfair
  • Applications about human rights and the rights of children and families relating to education
  • Assessment and award compensation for victims of violent crimes
These are important issues that touch people’s lives in fundamental ways. People who appear before the SJTO tribunals have a right to fair and accessible dispute resolution, and that is our primary commitment to you.
