Long-Term RFP: Community Engagement

Community Engagement Overview

The IESO has initiated a number of Long-Term procurement initiatives to meet Ontario’s emerging reliability needs; including the now concluded Expedited Long-Term Request for Proposals (E-LT1 RFP), the currently ongoing Long-Term Request for Proposals (LT1 RFP), and the upcoming proposed Long-Term 2 Request for Proposals (LT2 RFP).

This engagement will provide interested parties with an opportunity to learn about and offer input for consideration into the procurement processes as it pertains to communities.

Engaging with municipalities and Indigenous communities is integral to the success of the long-term procurement process. Engagement activities, such as information sessions, will be held with municipalities and Indigenous communities. There will also be separate, more direct sessions that will consider the unique context of each type of participant group.

This community engagement web page is supplemental to the LT RFP engagement initiative and is aimed at providing opportunities for targeted information and discussions as they relate to the specific needs of Ontario communities. For further information, refer to information linked in the Key Documents section below.

All comments and enquiries in this engagement initiative can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca.

Indigenous communities can contact IESO Indigenous Relations at IndigenousRelations@ieso.ca.
