Electricity Distributors Association


As the voice of Ontario’s electricity distribution community, the EDA engages in targeted, effective advocacy on issues that impact utilities, shareholders and more than five million customers across the province. Working closely with our Councils and Committee, the EDA Policy and Government Affairs (PGA) team analyzes issues and establishes evidence-based policy recommendations. Our long-term, strategic relationships with governments, regulators and stakeholders have positioned the EDA the trusted go-to resource for electricity-related decision-making in Ontario.
