H​ydro One is proud to support a variety of community-based events throughout Ontario. It's our way of connecting with our customers and communities. If you're orga​nizing an event, we'd like to hear from you. 

We prefer to support local community events that attract a broad audience; they should be one of the major events on the community calendar.

Preference is given to events that occur in Hydro One communities. For the map of Hydro One's service territories, please click here. Because we cover such a large geographic area, we make every attempt to spread our support throughout Ontario.

While we applaud charities that raise funds through special events, we prefer to support charitable organizations through our Community Donations Program, not through sponsorship. Exceptions may be made where a number of our employees are volunteers with the organization.
