THE ELLIOT LAKE COMMISSION OF INQUIRY – OBOA Participation
The Elliot Lake Commission of Inquiry was established on July 19, 2012 by the Government of Ontario under the Public Inquiries Act, 2009. Its mandate is to inquire into and report on events surrounding the collapse on June 23, 2012, of the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake, the deaths and injuries, as well as the emergency management and response. Further, the Commission is to review relevant legislation, regulations and bylaws, policies processes and procedures of provincial and municipal governments and other parties with respect to the structural integrity of the Algo Centre Mall and the emergency management and response. The Commission is to report within 18 months with recommendations to prevent such occurrences in the future. Evidentiary hearings are scheduled to start in early 2013.
To assist in fulfilling its mandate, the Commission invited applications from persons or groups with a substantial and direct interest in the subject matter of the inquiry or whose participation may be helpful to fulfill the Commissioner’s mandate. In reviewing the Commission’s mandate, it is apparent that OBOA has “substantial and direct interest” in the subject matter, in particular the Commission's mandate, as set out in section 2 b. of the Terms of Reference [Order in Council 1097/2012]:
"Review relevant legislation, regulations and by-laws and relevant policies, processes and procedures of provincial and municipal governments and other parties with respect to the structural integrity and safety of the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake, Ontario".
In view of this, OBOA made applications to have full standing, including funding, to fully participate in that portion of the inquiry. OBOA’s applications have been granted, and as such, have secured the right to take an active part in the proceedings of the inquiry.
