Ontario Energy Board Land Acknowledgement
To recognize and honour the Indigenous Peoples on whose traditional lands we work, the OEB is now conducting formal land acknowledgements at all public events hosted and attended by the OEB, including our adjudicative hearings. This important step is a demonstration of our commitment to promote reconciliation and strengthen relations with Indigenous Peoples.
The Ontario Energy Board acknowledges that our headquarters in Toronto is located on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. This area is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
We are grateful for the opportunity to gather and work on this land, and recognize our shared responsibility to support and be good stewards of it.

Equity is embedded in our workplace culture, processes and practices and we collectively strive to create an environment in which all people feel a sense of belonging and can participate fully.
We aspire to become a truly diverse, accessible and inclusive organization.
