The term of the assignment is for 2 years with an option to extend for an additional year.

The OEB is the regulator of Ontario’s electricity and natural gas sectors. The OEB holds oral hearings and other related regulatory events concerning applications to set electricity and natural gas rates, for the construction natural gas pipelines or electricity transmission lines, for matters referred to it by the Minister of Energy or for any other matter appropriately brought to the Ontario Energy Board by application or which the OEB determines that it will hear on its own motion. The Board also holds consultations and related proceedings for policy matters.

The OEB requires verbatim transcription of OEB proceedings, including the ability to provide service in both Official Languages, when required.
