Records Request Form for Public Records
A records request allows an individual to request access to public records filed in past adjudicative proceedings or consultations at the OEB that are not available on the OEB’s website.
Before submitting a Records Request Form, check the OEB’s Advanced Regulatory Document Search (RDS) to see if the record is already available online.
The Records Request Form is only for requesting publicly available adjudicative or consultation records. It is not to be used for freedom of information requests.
How to submit a request for public records
To submit a records request, please fill out the Records Request Form.
When submitting a records request, you must include the case file number (e.g., EB-YYYY-####) that the record(s) belongs to, otherwise no request can be submitted. You are also encouraged to provide additional information/context in the Records Request Form to assist in ensuring that the appropriate record(s) is located.
Once a records request has been submitted, you will receive an automated email with the details of your request. If the OEB requires additional information about your records request, a follow-up email will be sent to the email address provided in the Records Request Form.
When the record(s) has been located, a digital copy will be sent to you via email. If you have any questions about accessibility at the OEB, please click here.
Freedom of Information Requests
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) gives a person the right to access information from certain public sector organizations, including the OEB. The right of access is subject to exemptions and exclusions set out in FIPPA.
How to submit a freedom of information (FOI) request
The FOI request must be made in writing; include a detailed description of the records being sought; and be accompanied by a $5.00 application fee (either by cheque or money order made payable to the Ontario Energy Board).
Please use the online form to submit your FOI request. Once your FOI request has been submitted, you will receive an automated email with the details of your request.
The $5.00 application fee is to be mailed to:
Ontario Energy Board
2300 Yonge Street, 27th floor
P.O. Box 2319
Toronto, ON M4P 1E4
Your FOI request will not be considered complete until the application fee is received by the OEB.
Additional fees may apply to process your FOI request. For example, additional fees may be charged for searching for records and for preparing the records for disclosure. If the additional fees will be over $25, you will receive a letter setting out the fee estimate for processing the request. If the additional fees will be over $100, a deposit may be required to continue processing the request.
