What is The Municipal Board and what can it do?

0

The Municipal Board is a quasi-judicial tribunal established under The Municipal Board Act. That Act sets out the general provisions respecting the Board’s operations. Other provincial statutes, such as The Municipal Act, The Municipal Assessment Act, and The Planning Act, also give the Board jurisdiction to make decisions or recommendations about various matters. The Board only has the jurisdiction given to it by the statute. If that statute sets a time limit for filing a matter with the Board, failure to file within that time limit will mean that the Board no longer has the jurisdiction to hear and decide the matter.
