On May 13, 2017, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) and Hydro One held an engagement session at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Toronto. The session included Provisional Council (PCMNO) Regional Councillors, Presidents of MNO community councils and Hydro One representatives.

The engagement’s objectives were to bring Hydro One and MNO together to share mutual aspirations and discuss the issues that matter to the MNO. Hydro One also had the opportunity to explain their current thinking and solicit feedback on the application for distribution rates and the distribution system plan that they have submitted to the Ontario Energy Board.

Key topics for the session included: customer service, reliability, procurement, employment and training opportunities. The overarching objective was to have a constructive dialogue that allows MNO and Hydro One to learn from each other.

Hydro One representatives explained that the company is changing the way it does business. They have a new leadership team and a renewed commitment to working more effectively with all of its customers. The Métis customers they serve are an important part of that journey and Hydro One believes that forging strong and meaningful relationships is critical to their mutual success.
