At Hydro One, we feel a deep responsibility to support the communities where we work and live. Earlier this year, we sponsored the Orillia 2020 Ontario Winter Games and made the event a possibility for more than 3,500 participants to compete in over 27 different sports. We could not be more proud of this partnership and look forward to finding more ways to give back to the community together.

We’re also committed to investing in the local economy. Construction has started on the new Ontario Grid Control Centre in Orillia, and we’ve committed to developing a new provincial warehouse and regional operations centre in the area.
