SJTO Common Rules (September 17, 2013)
Social Justice Tribunals Ontario (SJTO) is introducing new Common Rules of Procedure which apply to all tribunals in the SJTO, effective October 1, 2013.
The Common Rules are grounded in the core adjudicative values and principles of the SJTO which govern the work of the cluster. Common Rules provide a consistent overarching framework of common procedures.
The SJTO Practice Directions support the Common Rules of Procedure and provide guidance about what the tribunal expects of the parties and in turn what the parties can expect of the tribunal. They assist in understanding and applying the rules.
There will now be two parts to the rules that govern the procedures of the tribunals in the SJTO. Part I is the Common Rules and Part II is the individual tribunal specific rules.
