The OEB’s next step in implementing and operationalizing the OEB Stakeholder Engagement Framework is the establishment of a new standing committee, the Adjudicative Modernization Committee, that can be called upon to provide early advice to senior management and the Chief Commissioner and serve as a forum for informal discussions with industry stakeholders on matters related to adjudication process and policy. We are inviting nominations from the sector as we establish this committee.

We are inviting nominations from the sector as we establish this committee. Members will serve as key contributors to our future planning discussions and prioritization processes.
