The foundations for the role and responsibilities of the Ontario Review Board go back to Great Britain in the 17th century and the writings of Sir Matthew Hale.
The Ontario Review Board annually reviews the status of every person who has been found to be not criminally responsible or unfit to stand trial for criminal offences on account of a mental disorder. The Ontario Review Board is established under the Criminal Code of Canada. The Board is made up of judges, lawyers, psychiatrists, psychologists and public members appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
