Many Ontario municipalities had defaulted on their debts, leading to the establishment of a provincial municipal auditor in 1897 that then grew into the ORMB in 1906.
During the depression years of the late 1920s and early 1930s, it became necessary for the ORMB to oversee and regulate financial matters, such as debt consolidation of municipalities, which were teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.
The OMB provides that opportunity so that proceedings are less like a court of law and more accessible to citizens, but it has yet to shed the formal court-like setting entrenched since the creation of ORMB.
