The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) regulates Ontario's electricity and natural gas sectors in the public interest. This includes setting just and reasonable rates, approving leave to construct applications, and licensing all participants in the electricity sector, as well as natural gas marketers who sell to low volume consumers.
The Lieutenant Governor in Council appoints at least five members and designates one member as chair and two members as vice-chairs. The chair is the chief executive officer of the board and, unless otherwise authorized by the Minister, shall devote his or her full time to the work of the board. The chair and vice-chairs make up the OEB's Management Committee and are responsible for overseeing the management and operations of the OEB.
The first term of office of a person who is appointed to the board shall not exceed two years. A member of the board may be reappointed for one or more terms of office, each of which does not exceed five years. The chair and each vice-chair holds office for the term specified by the Lieutenant Governor in Council which shall not exceed his or her term as a member of the board. Despite the first term provisions and the reappointment provisions, when a member of the board is designated as chair, the designation may provide that his or her term of office as a member continues for a period that does not exceed five years from the date of the designation as chair, and the reappointment clause applies to any subsequent reappointment as a member.
- Board members meet as required to adjudicate applications before the Board. The management committee, comprised of the Chair and Vice Chair meet as required to oversee the management and operations of the Board.
The Vice-Chair and members of the Ontario Energy Board are remunerated according to Schedule A, Level 2 of the Agencies and Appointments Directive except for the Chair who is remunerated at a rate set by the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
