Ontario One Call (OOC) administers the Ontario Underground Infrastructure Notification System Act 2012 and plays a vital role in protecting the public from harm and damage to underground infrastructure. OOC is in transition moving from a service provider to a service-oriented regulator. During this time of transition, the guidance of the board of director is integral to its ability to support infrastructure owners, excavators and stakeholders.
OOC is seeking two representatives from the excavation sector to serve on the board of directors. This application will remain open until the Excavator Representative positions have been filled.
About Ontario One Call’s Board of Directors
One Call’s board of directors is currently comprised of 16 members representing various sectors within the industry including industry leaders representing infrastructure owners (Municipal, Electricity, Gas & Oil Pipeline, Telecommunications & Cable, etc.), leaders representing the excavation community and leaders appointed by government.
The board’s main role is to govern OOC and set its goals. The board must work to ensure OOC has financial sustainability, sound policy development, and proper visioning. The board of directors is accountable to the corporation’s members, and will report at the annual meeting of members. As the organization becomes a delegated administrative authority, changes will be made to OOC’s by-laws to ensure that the board remains in an oversight capacity and the staff are empowered to guide the organization through its transformation.
Leaders are invited to apply to stand for nomination representing the excavator community on the OOC’s Board of Directors.
Three year term starting in June, 2023. Directors may be re-elected to serve up to two subsequent terms of three years each.
- The nominee must be an active leader in the excavation industry, employed or previously employed by an excavator with operations in the province of Ontario.
- The employer must be supportive of the investment of time and interest that all Ontario One Call directors make, including attending a minimum of five board meetings annually and participating in board committees and/or task forces.
- The nominee must have a combination of skills and experience that equip them to serve on the board. The board is particularly looking to add members with finance/accounting, legal and regulatory designations or experience.
This application will remain open until the Excavator Representative positions have been filled.
