Welcome to the new website of the Office of the Chief Risk Officer!

Office of the Chief Risk Officer
Website launch
We’re thrilled to reveal a new phase in our development: a brand new home page for the Office of the Chief Risk Officer (formerly the Office of Risk Management).

With a new home page and a clearer structure, the OCRO website will offer valuable information to help the University community work, learn, teach and conduct research. Websites of services under the Chief Risk Officer have been brought together. This is more than just a website remake — it’s a celebration of us united, of our mission and our commitment to manage risk at our university.

Our office, renamed in summer 2021, remains committed to centralizing and improving risk management operations. We therefore take a unified, proactive approach to ensure safety and wellness on campus.


The Office of the Chief Risk Officer will continue to include the following key services:

  • Protection Services
  • Emergency Management
  • Health, Safety and Environmental Management
  • Operational Risk Management and Insurance
  • Enterprise Risk Management
  • Internal Audit

Our vision is to be an essential resource and trusted partner when it comes to operational and enterprise risk management, to contribute to a safe. successful and sustainable University of Ottawa.
