OMVIC’s discipline hearings are open to the public except where a Panel is of the opinion that it may be closed under the Act and the Statutory Powers and Procedures Act. Space is limited and observers will be admitted on a first come first serve basis. Observers are encouraged to contact Discipline@omvic.on.ca and book their attendance. If you are a member of the media, contact Communications@omvic.on.ca. At the hearing panel’s discretion, use of an audio recorder is permitted for note-taking purposes only. Rebroadcast of a hearing is strictly prohibited.
Contested hearings will be scheduled to be held in-person through a third-party facilitator upon consent of the parties. Uncontested matters will continue to be held virtually, as well as all pre-hearings, until further notice. We will ensure to continue to follow any Provincial health guidelines that are in place and make the necessary changes should they arise. Hearing dates can change at any time. Please check the schedule regularly for changes.
