About the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario

The Environmental Bill of Rights, 1993 (EBR) states that there shall be an Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO or “Commissioner”), an independent officer of the Legislative Assembly who is responsible for reviewing and reporting on the government’s compliance with the EBR.

The ECO, often referred to as Ontario’s “environmental watchdog,” reports to the Legislative Assembly—not to a political party or to a ministry. The ECO is appointed for a five-year term and may be reappointed for additional terms.
