5. Ask to change your hearing date, if you need to

The Ontario Human Rights Commission has released their latest take on mandatory vaccines, passports and testing, here: http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/news_centre/ohrc-policy-statement-covid-19-vaccine-mandates-and-proof-vaccine-certificates. In light of this update, and the new directives that the Province released a few weeks ago, we are in the process of updating our covid testing content. Please re-visit the site to access the updated content when it is available.

The (SBT) expects you to be ready to go to your hearing on the date that they set.

If you need to change the date, ask the SBT as soon as possible.

Unless it’s an emergency, you have to write to the SBT and:

  • explain why you need to change the date
  • suggest new dates that are within 60 days of when your hearing is set to happen

There are detailed rules about how to ask the SBT to change the date. You might have to contact the or your local Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) office first, to ask if they agree.

If you miss your hearing

If you miss your hearing because you can’t get there or get there late, the SBT might decide your appeal without hearing from you.

So, if you have an emergency and can’t get to your hearing on time, call the SBT at 1-888-256-6758.
