Those interested in submitting a nomination for the MDAG are asked to do the following:

  • Review the Terms of Reference to understand the role of the group, the desired qualifications, and the expectations for preparation and participation in meetings
  • Send an email with your nomination to The email should demonstrate your qualifications and experience in competitive electricity markets (Ontario and/or external jurisdictions) and address the following questions:

1. Description of your vision of how competitive markets fit into Ontario’s energy future and key priorities to achieve that goal

2. Both the nominee’s dedication and their company or organization’s (if applicable) commitment and support to create a competitive and dynamic electricity market in Ontario
