Regulation - LGIC

Code of Conduct for O.P.P. Detachment Board Members under the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019

Regulation Number(s):
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 a code of conduct for members of Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment Boards.

The CSPA requires OPP Detachment Board Members to comply with a code of conduct. This regulation sets out the code of conduct for OPP Detachment Board Members which is intended to strengthen civilian governance by clarifying the behaviors that are expected and prohibited of individual board members.

For more detail, please see the attached draft regulation.

SOLGEN welcomes your comments and feedback.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
SOLGEN anticipates minor cost impacts for participating municipalities associated with mandatory training for board members, including on the code of conduct.
