Q. What's the LAT Process?

The Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT) is an adjudicative tribunal that is part of Safety, Licensing Appeals and Standards Tribunals Ontario (SLASTO).

LAT’s mandate is to provide a fair, impartial and efficient way to appeal decisions concerning compensation claims and licensing activities regulated by several ministries of the provincial government.

 The Tribunal receives appeals, conducts hearings, resolves disputes, and makes decisions on a wide variety of matters, with the most common cases involving liquor licences, new home warranty claims, medical suspension of driver’s licences, impoundment of motor vehicles and regulation of various occupations and businesses.

 Effective April 1, 2016, the Tribunal will begin accepting applications to the new Automobile Accident Benefits Service (AABS) system that aims to quickly resolve disagreements between individuals and insurance companies about accident benefits.
