Working closely with members, the EDA’s Policy & Government Affairs (PGA) team undertakes valuable research and expert policy development. We dive deep into issues that impact the distribution sector in Ontario today and develop bold ideas for a better tomorrow. We ask challenging questions and identify barriers to positive progress. Then we go further, identifying answers and practical solutions. That is why policy makers and stakeholders look to the EDA for expert advice and firsthand insights into the hearts and minds of distributors and electricity customers in Ontario.
