The Planning Justification Report and Municipal Staff Report: What Will They Look Like Under Bill 139

Bill 139 creates sweeping and fundamental changes that significantly affect the planning profession and process in Ontario. Developing and implementing new practice tools is essential for all RPPs.

RPPs help community stakeholders and decision-makers develop a 360 degree perspective before any major decisions are made based on extensive knowledge, experience and skill. This is why it is crucial for RPPs to learn all they can about Bill 139.

WeirFoulds LLP and OPPI together invite you to an interactive lunch program to discuss the new standard of review and appeal process under Bill 139.

Our expert panel will include:

Denise Baker, Partner, Municipal & Planning Law Group, WeirFoulds LLP
Bruce Engell, Partner, Municipal & Planning Law Group, WeirFoulds LLP
Mark Simeoni, RPP, Director Planning Services, Town of Oakville
Emma West, RPP, Partner, Bousfields Inc.

Our panelist will review:

  • Overview of the changes to the Act including new elements, general changes and transition
  • Appeals (Rights, Limits, Changes to, and Sheltering of Appeals)
  • Local Planning Appeal Tribunals (LPATs) & Regulations
  • How to address the new Standard of Review in Planning Reports

Please note that this event is by invitation only.
