The OEA ENERGYCONFERENCE18 was perfectly timed to discuss Ontario’s “Energy Vision”. As Ontario’s newly elected government delivers their mandate for the next five years, this event will address the key public policy issues, priorities and proposals for Ontario’s energy future.

The conference explored the intersection of government, policy and advocacy, provided delegates with an exclusive opportunity to connect with industry leaders, regulators and key government decision makers. Our speakers ranged from energy experts, to political figures and global thought leaders who will discuss the fundamental issues, opportunities and trends facing Ontario’s energy sector.
