Summary

The Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines (ENDM) sets the legislative and policy framework to ensure all Ontarians have a reliable and affordable energy supply and distribution and transmission system, as well as customer choice in their energy use billing system. ENDM also strives to ensure that Northern Ontario and the provincial minerals sector is strong, healthy and prosperous.

The Ministry develops and advises on all aspects of energy policy for Ontario, including electricity, natural gas and petroleum products. It oversees the Ontario Energy Board and the Independent Electricity System Operator. The Ministry is the sole shareholder of Ontario Power Generation and the largest shareholder of the publicly traded Hydro One.

ENDM works with partners and stakeholders to develop policies supporting cost-effective energy supply, transmission and distribution systems and promote energy conservation and energy efficiency. The Ministry also strives to consider and advance innovative solutions and technologies, and power the economy so that Ontario is Open for Business.

The Ministry delivers economic development programs and serves as a voice for Northern Ontario. ENDM’s programs support northern economic growth, and strong northern communities. The Ministry’s Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation makes strategic investments that help expand economic opportunity in the North.

ENDM promotes investment and exploration in the provincial minerals sector. ENDM’s Ontario Geological Survey provides geoscience information to clients about Ontario’s geology and earth resources. This research supports a range of provincial development, planning, environmental, energy, and climate change policy priorities. The Ministry also ensures safe, environmentally sound mineral development and rehabilitation of mining lands.

ENDM leads policy and program development for the Ring of Fire mineral development. The Ministry works closely with Indigenous communities, mining companies and other partners to encourage responsible and sustainable development.

The Ministry engages with Indigenous communities to fulfill the Crown’s legal duty to consult, in order to inform the development and implementation of energy and economic policies, programs and initiatives. ENDM also works to increase Indigenous partnership and participation in the energy and mining sectors, including resource revenue sharing.

Mines and Minerals Program - vote 2203

This program encourages, promotes and facilitates the sustained economic benefits of Ontario's mineral resources through its oversight of Ontario's mineral exploration and development sector. It promotes a strong, safe and sustainable Ontario by administering Ontario's Mining Act in a fair and consistent manner, to ensure sustainable and responsible development of our mineral resources. This involves ensuring equitable public access to Crown mineral rights, fair and efficient management of Ontario's mining lands as well as ensuring the safe, environmentally sound mineral development and rehabilitation of mining lands.

It also has responsibility for encouraging and facilitating Indigenous participation in economic opportunities associated with Ontario's mining sector in a way that is respectful of Indigenous rights and culture and meets Ontario's consultation obligations.

The program also generates and disseminates geoscientific data that attracts and guides mineral sector investment and informs a broad range of government policy priorities.

This program also provides support for policy and program development and implementation on a range of issues and opportunities with respect to development in the Ring of Fire. A dedicated secretariat works with all parties involved, consulting with Northerners including Indigenous people and the mining community to encourage the region's responsible, sustainable development.
