The information on this page applies to you if:

  • You are a respondent to an application filed under Part IV of the Human Rights Code on or after June 30, 2008
  • You are an affected person in respect of an application filed under Part IV of the Human Rights Code on or after June 30, 2008

As a quasi-judicial, neutral body, the Tribunal is not able to provide legal advice.

The HRTO's Response Form is a SmartForm that serves to replace paper based forms and speed up your response process.  A SmartForm is designed to ensure the essential information is in place to avoid unecessary delay due to missing necessary information. 

The SmartForm Response can be saved, printed and submitted electronically. Because this form allows the HRTO to easily upload the information, your application can be processed more quickly and accurately.

To use the SmartForm, your computer must have the following:
·         – this free software is available on Adobe’s website. You must download Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 8.0 or above) to view/print PDF forms.
·         Access to the Internet
To complete your SmartForm Response:
  • Step 1: Review the Respondent's Guide.  Detailed instructions for completing your response can be found in the Respondent's guide. 
    Please refer to it before you start or for any questions that you have as you go through the form.
  • Step 2: Fill out the SmartForm.  Click SmartForm Response form to open a blank SmartForm.
