What is a Case Management Conference (CMC)?
A case management conference is a preliminary meeting that is held prior to an OLT hearing to determine key details such as participants of a hearing, key issues of importance, identifying issues raised by an appeal, outlining how a case is to proceed before the Tribunal, and setting a date a hearing.
Why is there a CMC meeting and who is appealing?
The developers filed an appeal to the OLT due to the lack of decision made regarding the proposal.
How can residents participate in the hearing?
Residents can attend the CMC only to observe and not participate in the hearing unless they request Party or Participant status. To participate as either a Party or a Participant residents are required to file a request form to the Tribunal: OLT | Participant Status Request or OLT | Party Status Request Form.
The difference between a Party and Participant is detailed here: https://olt.gov.on.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/OLT-Rules-of-Practice-and-Procedure-Nov-2021.html#rule8.
Typically, residents register as Participants because in this role they are allowed to provide a written statement for the Tribunal's consideration to say their piece without being required to present evidence or cross-examine expert witnesses. The statement has to be written 10 days before the CMC date. For this case, the deadline for a written submission would be Tuesday, April 4, 2023.
