The Ministry of Energy is responsible for setting the legislative and policy framework to assure a clean, modern and reliable electricity system for all Ontarians.

The Ministry develops and advises on all aspects of energy policy for Ontario, including electricity, natural gas and oil. It oversees the Ontario Energy Board, Ontario Power Authority and Independent Electricity System Operator. The Ministry also represents the shareholder in dealings with Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation.

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