Policy Day: Charting the Path to Top Quartile Regulator

Policy Day LogoThe OEB is on a path to modernization, guided by a deep desire for change. We have set a goal of being recognized as a top quartile regulator and are working to improve certainty, transparency and accountability to the sector while driving value for Ontarians. This virtual, interactive event is an opportunity for industry stakeholders to hear early thinking about and provide input into our forward work plan for the 2022 – 2025 period. 

While we plan for the near term, we also need to think about the future of the sector. Policy Day is also an opportunity for participants to engage in a forward-looking discussion on longer-term sector evolution and how to anticipate and respond to change.
