Ethics Plan


The Ethics Plan for the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) sets out procedures for ensuring that members are familiar with applicable requirements regarding ethical conduct and public activity. This Plan also assists in the implementation of the OLT’s Core Values.

This Ethics Plan is prepared in accordance with section 6 of the Adjudicative Tribunals Accountability, Governance and Appointments Act, 2009 and Ontario Regulation 91/11. This regulation prescribes the content of the Ethics Plan.

Members shall abide by the Conflict of Interest Rules in Ontario Regulation 381/07 and the OLT Conflict of Interest Rules, approved and published by the Conflict of Interest Commissioner.
