The 2nd annual Policy Day takes place October 13, 2022.

Guided by a deep desire to keep up with change in the energy sector, we are continually working to improve certainty, transparency and accountability to the sector while driving value for Ontarians. Launched in 2021, Policy Day is our annual opportunity to provide a progress report to the sector and for stakeholders to input into our forward work plan.

The energy sector is undergoing a significant transition. Through Policy Day 2022, we’re engaging the sector as the OEB develops its plans to ensure we navigate the transition together. Being ready to address system and customer needs is top-of-mind for sector players and accordingly form multiple elements of our forward work plan.

Stakeholder input on needs and plans will help the OEB remain focused on the right priorities.


*Event registration is limited and by invitation only for Policy Day. Keeping registration to a limited number of participants will enable a meaningful dialogue.
