Understanding the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) Workshop Series

On Saturday, October 25, 2003, the Heritage Resources Centre (HRC) presented Understanding the OMB: An Ontario Municipal Board Workshop. Lead by Gregory Daly, the workshop focused on providing municipalities, planners, community groups and any other interested party with the tools required to present their case to the OMD without the need of a lawyer. Katherine Kirzati of the OMB was also on hand to discuss the procedures of the OMB. The workshop was held at the historic Brubacher House Museum at the University of Waterloo. The workshop is the first in a series of workshops about the OMB, including a Mock Hearing in which participants will be able to simulate presenting their position to the OMB.

Future OMB workshops are expected to be held in Toronto in March and in Ottawa in April. Please email hrc@uwaterloo.ca if you are interested in these workshops.
