Why is Halton Hills Hydro using an online public engagement platform?

    Traditionally, public engagement has relied on telephone surveys or public meetings which are often at inconvenient times for many people. Halton Hills Hydro is seeking input from as many customers as possible as we develop our future plans.

    By using an online public engagement platform, Halton Hills Hydro is hoping to provide many more residents and businesses with an opportunity engage with us and to bring ideas forward.

    We are hoping that this platform will create a dialogue with our customers about what is important to them as we develop our 5 year plan.
