Administrative history

Formed ca. 1922 as the Vaughan Township Hydro-Electric System, the Vaughan Township Hydro-Electric Power Commission was charged with locally administering the provision of hydro-electricity to Vaughan Township. In 1971, with the inception of regional government, the functions of the Vaughan Township Hydro-Electric Power Commission and the Woodbridge Hydro-Electric Power Commission were amalgamated to form the Town of Vaughan Hydro-Electric Commission. Function assumed by City of Vaughan Hydro-Electric Power Commission in 1991. Betweeen 1998 and 2000, Aurora Hydro Connections Ltd., Barrie Hydro Distribution Inc., Hydro Vaughan Distribution Inc., Markham Hydro Distribution Inc. and Richmond Hill Hydro Inc. gradually incorporated under the Ontario Business Act as required under the Energy Competition Act. In 2001, Hydro Vaughan Distribution Inc. and Markham Hydro Distribution Inc. jointly purchased the electricity distribution assets of Richmond Hill Hydro Inc. In 2004, Hydro Vaughan Distribution Inc., Markham Hydro Distribution Inc. and Richmond Hill Hydro Inc. merged to create the third largest municipally-owned electricity distribution company in Ontario. This new entity was named PowerStream Inc. and served more than 192,000 customers in three municipalities. In 2005, PowerStream Inc. purchased the electricity distribution assets of Aurora Hydro Connections Ltd and, in 2009, PowerStream Inc and Barrie Hydro Distribution Inc. merged.
