Important Notice

March 27, 2024

On April 1, 2024, the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019 (CSPA) is set to come into force and as a result, the Police Services Act (PSA) will be repealed. Section 216(5) of the CSPA requires the OCPC to complete any hearings or appeals under section 25 or Part V of the PSA that were initiated prior to the PSA being repealed. Once the PSA is repealed, the OCPC cannot accept any new appeals, applications or requests for investigation, and the applicable CSPA entities will assume responsibility for any new cases, as appropriate.

The OCPC continues to work diligently on its adjudicative and investigative caseloads and will make adjustments in accordance with the CSPA and Ontario Regulation 125/24 (Transitional Matters) under the CSPA. At a future date, to be determined by the Ministry of the Attorney General, the OCPC will be dissolved.


All decisions released by the OCPC on or after January 1, 1977, are posted on the Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII) website. CanLII is an online platform that offers free public access to tribunal and court decisions.

If you need access to a particular decision that is not available on CanLII, please contact the OCPC.
