Light-front quantization of the Chern-Simons theory coupled to complex scalars is performed in the local light-cone gauge following the Dirac procedure. The light-front Hamiltonian turns out to a simple one and the framework may be useful to construct a renormalized field theory of anyons. The theory is shown to be relativistic in spite of the unconventional transformations of the matter and the gauge field, in the non-covariant gauge adopted, under space rotations.
