Under O. Reg. 507/18 of the Electricity Act (Energy Reporting and Conservation and Demand Management Plans), broader public sector (BPS) organizations including all municipalities are required to submit their annual energy consumption reports to the Ministry of Energy annually by July 1.

Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) Plans for BPS organizations must also be completed and publicly posted every 5 years starting July 1, 2014. Next updates are required July 1, 2019, July 1, 2024, etc.

In late April, the Ministry of Energy emailed each municipality their username and link to the reporting portal. Please check your email (including your junk mail folder). If you have not received your log-in information, please email BPSSupport@ontario.caimmediately.

Important information on Ontario Reg. 507/18

Ontario Reg. 507/18 requires all BPS organizations to:
  • Report on their annual energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in designated buildings/facilities by July 1; and
  • Develop and implement 5-year energy CDM plans by July 1, 2019.
The regulation was established to help municipalities and other public agencies better understand how and where they use energy, enabling them to develop plans to help them reduce their energy use.
