Conservation Review Board (CRB)

This site is no longer in use and may contain outdated information. Please visit our new site www.elto.gov.on.ca

The Conservation Review Board (Board) is an adjudicative tribunal that hears disputes on matters relating to the protection of properties considered to hold cultural heritage value or interest to a municipality or to the Minister of Culture, as defined by the Ontario Heritage Act (Act).

The Board, as an independent and quasi-judicial body, mediates and conducts a formal hearing process around issues such as objections to heritage designation, alterations to heritage properties, designation bylaw amendments and repeal, and archaeological licensing. The Board makes recommendations to the municipal council or the Minister of Culture, based on the evidence it hears through a transparent and unbiased formal hearing process. Members of the Board can be cross-appointed to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) as members with full standing to hear disputes under other sections of the Act. Decisions of the OMB are final.
