The Ontario government established the Inquiry on December 16, 2021 and appointed the Honourable Justice William Hourigan as Commissioner to lead the Inquiry. The mandate of the inquiry was to investigate the commercial and technical circumstances that led to the Stage 1 breakdowns and derailments of the Ottawa Light Rail Transit system. He was also asked to make recommendations to help prevent these issues from happening again.

Now that Commissioner Hourigan has delivered his final report, the Inquiry has shut down and is no longer responding to Inquiries. For a full account of the Commission’s work, refer to the final report, the interviews, testimony and overview reports on this website.
