Ontario Parole Board (OPB) Key Performance Indicators Archive

The OPB makes parole decisions for applicants serving a sentence of less than two years in a provincial correctional institution. The OPB also decides applications for temporary absences from a correctional institution for greater than 72 hours.

Tribunals Ontario’s Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) track the performance of our tribunals in a consistent manner and will be used to continually monitor and improve processes at tribunals. These KPIs are part of Tribunals Ontario’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and to ensure that the services we provide meet the needs of our users.

For more information on the meaning of key terms, refer to our terms and definitions. For more information about KPIs and how they were calculated, see Key Performance Indicators.

  • The OPB does not have a standard case lifecycle, as all cases are active until the applicants are discharged from an institution and the decision issued is determined by the Parole Eligibility Date (PED), not a pre-set timeframe. Due to the OPB not having a case lifecycle, they will not be reporting on the percentage of cases within the case lifecycle KPI.
  • The OPB does not conduct alternative dispute resolution. As such, they will not be reporting on the KPI for the percentage of cases resolved through alternative dispute resolution.
