2018/2019 Regional Electricity Forums

Regional Forum banner showing cities of Thunder Bay, Timmins, Kitchener & Kingston

These full day forums were an opportunity to bring together a cross section of community and business audiences representing municipal, Indigenous communities, local distribution companies, energy services and associations to explore the future direction of the electricity sector.

 

The 2018/2019 forums explored how the unique characteristics of each community can factor into regional and broader provincial electricity planning.

 

The IESO has published a report that details the feedback heard during the forums and the IESO’s response.
