Tavares applying to the OHL for exceptional status got the ball rolling for the exceptional status clause in the CDM that was introduced in 2005.
Before that, it was a regional decision.

Post 2005, it's Hockey Canada in conjunction with the regional governing body of the player (i.e. Ontario Hockey Federation).
