Long-Term RFP: Community Engagement

Community Engagement Overview

Activities are underway to develop and implement the Long-Term Request for Proposals (LT RFP), a procurement for new and expanded facilities to meet Ontario’s emerging reliability needs. The initiative seeks at least 1,000 MW of new capacity to be in service between 2026 and 2028. This engagement will provide interested parties with an opportunity to learn about and offer input for consideration into the procurement processes as it pertains to communities.

Engaging with municipalities and Indigenous communities will be integral to the success of this initiative. Engagement activities, such as information sessions, will be held with municipalities and Indigenous communities. There will also be separate, more direct sessions that will consider the unique context of each type of participant group.

This community engagement web page is supplemental to the LT RFP engagement initiative and is aimed at providing opportunities for targeted information and discussions as they relate to the specific needs of Ontario communities. Further audience-specific information is provided in the engagement roadmaps, brief documents describing what communities can expect throughout the LT RFP procurement process, linked in the Key Documents section below.

Additional details on the IESO’s plans to engage communities, stakeholders and interested parties throughout the process are outlined in the broader LT RFP Engagement Plan.

All comments and enquiries in this engagement initiative can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca

Indigenous communities can contact IESO Indigenous Relations at IndigenousRelations@ieso.ca.
