Consultation on Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan

Consultations on Ontario’s Long-Term Energy plan are now closed.

We’re developing a plan to build a clean, reliable and affordable energy system, and we asked you to help us by telling us what you’d like Ontario’s electricity system to look like in the future.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s consultations. We’ll consider your feedback and release the Long-Term Energy Plan in 2017.


Ontario launched its first Long-Term Energy Plan in 2010. It was reviewed and updated in 2013 with input from people across Ontario.

Ontario’s energy use has changed substantially in the last decade. Our homes, businesses and industries are becoming more efficient. At the same time, we’re exploring new technology and renewable energy sources.

To continue to adapt to these changes, we’re getting ready to update our plan again. We need your help to ensure we balance five principles that guide decision-making:

  • affordability
  • reliability
  • clean energy
  • community and Indigenous engagement
  • conservation and demand management
