The Government of Ontario is seeking a part-time member for the Conservation Review Board (CRB), part of the Environment and Land Tribunals Ontario (ELTO) cluster. The CRB hears disputes and conducts settlement conferences under the Ontario Heritage Act (Act) on matters relating to the protection of properties considered to hold cultural heritage value or interest to a municipality or to the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
As a part-time member of the CRB, you will hear issues such as objections to heritage designations, alterations to heritage properties, designation bylaw amendments and repeals, and archaeological licensing.
