Public consultation is an integral part of the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process.

The intent of public consultation is to identify and inform potentially-affected property owners, government agencies, municipal officials, and other local stakeholders about the project and to provide opportunities for all parties to ask questions and provide their feedback throughout the process.

See below for documents supporting our public consultation process. The public consultation process is also documented in the final Environmental Study Report, July 2010.



Hydro One and the Ontario Power Authority gave a number presentations and briefings to local municipal officials and local distribution company representatives at key stages of the study.
