The Electricity Distributors Association is unique among energy-related associations in that it focuses exclusively on the issues and needs of the local electricity utilities – the consumer-facing companies responsible for the actual delivery of electricity to homes, businesses and public institutions.

Our members operate within local and regional service territories across the province. And while private investment plays a growing role in the sector, they are predominantly owned by local municipalities.



The EDA exists to provide local distribution companies with the valued industry knowledge, networking opportunities and collective action vital to the business success of each member.


Leveraging our unique depth of distribution-related expertise, we provide members with:

Up-to-date, expert analysis of relevant legislation and market rules, with a particular focus on regulation

Advocacy and representation in the legislative and regulatory environment and the electricity market in Ontario

Networking opportunities for communication with professional and industry colleagues
