Introduction

This document provides information on appealing a Notice of Proposal, Order of Monetary Penalty or Notice of Proposed Order issued by the Registrar of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

Hearings and Appeals under the Liquor Licence Act

Who Can Appeal

Individuals or businesses who are applying for a licence, or are licensed, under the Liquor Licence Act and who dispute a Notice of Proposal (NOP) issued by the Registrar of Alcohol and Gaming (the Registrar) to refuse the application or to suspend or revoke the licence, or who dispute an Order of Monetary Penalty (OMP),  may appeal to the Licence Appeal Tribunal.

If the Registrar of the AGCO proposes to refuse, revoke or suspend a licence, the Registrar must serve a Notice of Proposal (NOP) on the appellant/licensee outlining the reasons for the proposed action.

Appellants/licensees who dispute an NOP issued by the Registrar may appeal the proposal to the Licence Appeal Tribunal.

If the Registrar of the AGCO issues an Order of Monetary Penalty (OMP), the Registrar must serve the OMP on the licensee which includes the allegation(s) plus details of the alleged infraction(s) in the Order. Licensees who dispute an OMP issued by the Registrar may appeal the Order to the Licence Appeal Tribunal.

How to Appeal

If you received a NOP or OMP and wish to request a hearing/appeal, you have fifteen (15) days from the date of receiving the NOP or OMP to submit a written request for a hearing/appeal to the Licence Appeal Tribunal.
