How long does it currently take to get a hearing scheduled at the Landlord and Tenant Board?

On February 24, 2021, the LTB held a Stakeholder Webinar. At that time we were advised that a non-payment of rent application, an L1 or L9, should now take about six months from filing for a hearing to be scheduled.

Many changes were made to the Residential Tenancies Act on September 1, 2021. More adjudicators have also been hired.

At that time I expect that a non-payment of rent application, an L1 or L9, should now take about 3-4 months from filing for a hearing to be scheduled.

The Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board are working to get hearings scheduled for L2 applications down to 3-6 months.

The wait for a hearing to be scheduled for other types of applications such as an A2, T1, T2, and T6 is currently longer than six months.
