The Ontario Association of Basketball Officials (OABO) is affiliated with Ontario Basketball, the Canadian Association of Basketball Officials (CABO) and the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials (IAABO).

The mandate of OABO is to organize, unite, and educate all basketball officials in the Province of Ontario. OABO also looks to:

  • to act as the official spokesperson for basketball officials within the province on any and all provincial matters pertaining to basketball officiating.
  • to promote a standard interpretation of the rules and utilization of mechanics by means of clinics, published information, audiovisual aids, and the interchange of officials.
  • to ensure that members are free from discrimination, interference, restriction, coercion, harassment, intimidation or disciplinary action exercised or practiced by a member or Local Board, by reason of race, colour, age, national or ethnic origin, political or religious affiliation, handicap, sex or sexual orientation.
