The Ministry of Energy works with many partners inside and outside of government to develop the electricity generation, transmission, distribution and other energy-related facilities that help power our economy—and to ensure that Ontario remains one of the best places in the world in which to live, work, invest and raise a family.

A top priority is ensuring that Ontario’s electricity needs are met in a sustainable manner. Developing renewable energy sources and fostering a conservation-oriented culture are cornerstones of Ontario’s balanced plan to provide clean and reliable energy—while encouraging the development of a clean energy economy for our future.


The ministry also has legislative responsibility for several agencies including:

The Independent Electricity System Operator

Ontario Energy Board

Ontario Power Generation
