Regulation - LGIC

The Ontario Police Arbitration and Adjudication Commission 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 Ontario Police Arbitration and Adjudication Commission (OPAAC).

The CSPA requires OPAAC to have two committees that are responsible for a register(s) of arbitrators for labour-related disputes and a roster of adjudicators for discipline-related hearings. The Act also enables the creation of regulations prescribing the eligibility criteria for adjudicators. The proposed regulation sets out the composition of the arbitration and adjudication committees, in addition to prescribing factors that must be considered in the selection of adjudicators for the roster.

For more detail, please see the attached draft regulation.

SolGen welcomes your comments and feedback.
