COVID-19 Safety Policy

As of January 7, 2022, the Provincial Health Officer has ordered a return to COVID-19 Safety Protocols. Accordingly, the Board will now be closed to the public and it has re-instituted its COVID-19 Safety Policy for Board staff.

All Board hearings, mediations, settlement conferences, and case management meetings will be conducted virtually. In-person representation votes mandated by the Labour Relations Code  (the Code) will be conducted electronically.

For more information about virtual proceedings, please see the following:

Statutory declarations

  • The Board continues to waive the requirement under the Rules that a party file a sworn statutory declaration in support of applications under the Code, including, but not limited to, applications under Section 99 and Section 141 of the Code
  • In lieu of a statutory declaration, parties may file an unsworn statement containing the same information and documents that would otherwise have been required in a sworn statutory declaration
  • The change is subject to the discretion of the Board or the panel assigned to require a sworn statutory declaration on a case by case basis.

If you have any questions or concerns about an active file, please contact us.
