GTA and Central Ontario

The five planning regions in the GTA and Central Ontario area includes all of the Greater Toronto Area, stretches north to Parry Sound/Muskoka, and roughly spans the area from Meaford to Minden.

Barrie/Innisfil Engagement - Regional and Community Engagement

The IESO invites municipalities, First Nation and Métis communities, stakeholders, community groups and the general public to help provide input to help inform long-term electricity planning for the Barrie/Innisfil sub-region. Regional planning examines the reliability performances of the transmission and distribution infrastructure and where appropriate, examines options to mitigate the potential impact of power outages to communities and businesses in the area. Relevant resource options to meet local electricity needs, such as conservation and demand management, distributed generation, large-scale generation, transmission and distribution are considered through the development of an Integrated Regional Resource Plan (IRRP). An IRRP was released for the Barrie/Innisfil area in December 2016. The Working Group that developed the local electricity plan for the area consists of staff from InnPower, Alectra Utilities (formerly PowerStream), Hydro One Distribution, Hydro One Transmission and the IESO.
