Canada’s electricity sector is fundamental to our strong economy and high standard of living. As a sector that provides an essential service, it faces intense scrutiny from a myriad of stakeholders, including federal, provincial and municipal levels of government; regulatory bodies; policy makers; and consumers.

As the sector continues to evolve, so, too, will opportunities, crises, regulatory structures, production and distribution models, as well as consumer expectations.

The electricity sector is subject to a vast network of issues that extend far beyond the tangible matter of keeping the lights on. What are the implications of present and potential changes for our clients, their contracts, financial matters and attendant policies? Effective change agents must navigate intangibles and propose practical solutions.
