Regulation - LGIC

Code of Conduct for OPP Governance Advisory Council under the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019

Regulation Number(s):
N/A
Instrument Type:
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019
Summary of Proposal:
In March 2019, the government passed the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019 (CSPA), as part of the Comprehensive Ontario Police Services Act, 2019. Once in force, the CSPA will replace the current Police Services Act (PSA). The CSPA is an opportunity to modernize policing and enhance community safety in Ontario.

As part of the work to bring the Act into force, the Ministry of the Solicitor General (SolGen) is working on regulations on a number of matters.

At this time, SolGen is requesting public and stakeholder input on a proposed regulation related to the code of conduct for members of the Ontario Provincial Police Governance Advisory Council.

The CSPA requires that an Ontario Provincial Police Governance Advisory Council be established to advise the Solicitor General regarding the use of his or her powers with respect to the Ontario Provincial Police under sections 59 to 62 of the CSPA and perform any other prescribed duties. The CSPA requires members to adhere to a code of conduct. The proposed code of conduct for Advisory Council members is consistent with the proposed code of conduct for police service board members.

For more detail, please see the attached draft regulations.

SolGen welcomes your comments and feedback.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
The CSPA requires that an Ontario Provincial Police Governance Advisory Council be established to advise the Solicitor General regarding the use of his or her powers with respect to the Ontario Provincial Police under sections 59 to 62 of the CSPA and perform any other prescribed duties. The CSPA requires members to adhere to a code of conduct. The proposed code of conduct for Advisory Council members is consistent with the proposed code of conduct for police service board members.
