An owner may appeal the Order to Repair issued by a Property Standards Officer to the Property Standards Committee by filing their Notice of Appeal Form with the Committee Coordinator of the Council Services Department within 14 days after being served with the Order. The Notice of Appeal Form is attached to the Order to Repair.
The fee to hear the appeal is $425.00 and is non-refundable.
The Committee has only the following powers under the Ontario Building Code Act:
- Confirm the order to demolish or repair
- Rescind the order
- Modify the order

Any owner or occupant or person affected by a Decision of the Property Standards Committee may appeal to the Superior Court of Justice by notifying the Clerk of the Municipality in writing and by applying to the Court within 14 days after a copy of the Decision is sent on the appeal.
