As Ontario’s independent energy regulator, we develop policy that contributes to a sustainable and reliable energy sector and protects consumers. The Minister of Energy also calls on us to implement special requirements – called directives – and to provide expert and impartial advice on important policy initiatives.
How we develop new policies
When we develop new policies, we engage energy companies, energy-related agencies, public interest groups and consumers. Some of our practices include:
- Stakeholder meetings and working groups
- Public consultations and meetings with Indigenous Communities
- Review of practices in other provinces or countries
