Welcome to the e-file portal, a new Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) service that enables you to prepare and manage your appeals online.

How to e-file

Currently, e-file only allows you to digitally submit an appeal if you are filing with any of the following approval authorities:

  • Hamilton (City) – Committee of Adjustment & Consent Authority
  • Middlesex Centre (Municipality): Clerk & Secretary-Treasurer
  • Ontario Land Tribunal

We will gradually expand to allow for the digital submissions of appeals to more approval authorities as we continue to transition to this new service.


Many appeals need to first be filed with a municipality or other approval authority before they come to the OLT.

Please check your notice of decision or applicable legislation to verify where an appeal should be filed.

If the notice or legislation requires you to file with a municipality/approval authority that is not listed above, you are not able to file your appeal through e-file


E-file allows you to:

  • File on your own behalf or the behalf of someone else (for example, a family
    member, a business or organization, or a client)
  • File multiple related appeals
  • Upload required documentation
  • Pay filing fees online
  • Print or save a PDF of your completed application
