About EDA

The Electricity Distributors Association is unique among energy-related associations in that it focuses exclusively on the issues and needs of the local electricity utilities – the consumer-facing companies responsible for the actual delivery of electricity to homes, businesses and public institutions.

Our members operate within local and regional service territories across the province. And while private investment plays a growing role in the sector, they are predominantly owned by local municipalities.


Leveraging our unique depth of distribution-related expertise, we provide members with:

  • Up-to-date, expert analysis of relevant legislation and market rules, with a particular focus on regulation
  • Networking opportunities for communication with professional and industry colleagues
  • Advocacy and representation in the legislative and regulatory environment and the electricity market in Ontario


EDA activities and policies are also consistently informed by a consideration of how customer interests – and the need to ensure the long-term sustainability of our electricity system – can best be advanced.
