Background: Bill 175 repeals and replaces Ontario’s Police Services Act, 1990, amends the Coroners Act, 1990, and created, for the first time, a Missing Persons Act and a Forensic Laboratories Act. In addition, two new acts are created to enhance police oversight in Ontario, including the Policing Oversight Act, and the Ontario Policing Discipline Tribunal Act. This represents the largest policing transformation in a generation. Many of the proposed changes come from an independent review on provincial police oversight by Appeal Court Justice Michael Tulloch early 2017.
The legislation received Royal Asset on March 8th, 2018.
