Corporate governance and reports

About us

Older or historical corporate documents can be found in the Archive.

The OEB's business plans outline our key objectives and initiatives, and how we will achieve them and measure our progress.

The OEB follows the conflict of interest rules set out in Ontario Regulation 381/07—Conflict of Interest Rules for Public Servants (Ministry) and Former Public Servants (Ministry). The OEB has additional rules for ethical conduct set out in its Addendum to the Code of Conduct.

The OEB recovers its operating and capital costs through assessments to the natural gas and electricity market participants that it regulates. The cost assessment model is the approach used by the OEB to allocate costs.

Disclosure of Travel and Hospitality Expenses

This section provides regular updates on the travel, meal and hospitality expense claims of Board Members, the COO, Vice-Presidents and the top five claimants within the OEB.

This section will show the person’s name and title, purpose of the trip(s), date and destination of the trip(s), names of government/agency attendees if applicable, plus a summary of expenses for relevant air fare, other transportation, accommodation, meals, hospitality and incidentals.

The OEB has been posting expense information since April 2010. Expense claims are reviewed prior to posting, by the Integrity Commissioner of Ontario.

Expense claim information for cabinet ministers and political staff as well as agency senior executives, appointees and the top five claimants of the designated agencies can be accessed through the Government of Ontario website as soon as possible after the claims are reviewed by the Integrity Commissioner.

All claims for reimbursement for travel and other expenses must comply with the principles and rules of the Travel, Meal and Hospitality Expenses Directive which is available on the Ministry of Government Services website.

The principles for reimbursement of expenses in the Directive include:

  • Taxpayer dollars are used prudently and responsibly with a focus on accountability and transparency.
  • Expenses for travel, meals and hospitality support government objectives.
  • Plans for travel, meals, accommodation and hospitality are necessary and economical with due regard for health and safety.

All expense claims are subject to oversight and approval and are reimbursed only if the expense is appropriate and reasonable.
