Disagreement with the Board's Decision

Both you and The City have the right to apply to the Court of Queen’s Bench for judicial review of the ARB decision. An application must be filed with the Court of Queen's Bench no more than 60 days after the date of the decision of the ARB. Judicial reviews of the Board’s decisions are governed by section 470 of the Municipal Government Act.

If you are considering an application to the Court of Queen’s Bench it is recommended that you consult legal counsel. The ARB staff are not able to offer any legal advice, suggestions, or guidance with respect to such inquiries.
