Resolve a complaint

Our Dispute Resolution Process.

Our customer service representatives are trained to have the answers you need on your first contact. However, if you're not satisfied with the answers you’ve received, we have an escalation process to help ensure that you get your question or concern resolved.

How to resolve a complaint

Contact our Customer Care team

If you have a question or concern, we encourage you to contact our Customer Care team Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. at 416-542-8000, or anytime through our online contact form. You can also reach us by mail or fax.

Escalate your concern to a supervisor

If you're not satisfied with the outcome of your initial contact with our Customer Care team, you may request that your concern be escalated to a supervisor. If not immediately available, a supervisor will contact you within two business days to help resolve your concern.

If your complaint requires further investigation, it will be referred to our Customer Management Services department, where we'll investigate your complaint and provide a response within two business days of receipt. If the investigation is expected to take longer, the Customer Management Services department will inform you within the two business day period and provide a date when you can expect a response.

Contact our Customer Liaison

Most customer concerns are resolved before they reach this step. However, if at this stage, you’re still not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint, please contact our Office of the President Customer Liaison by email at officeofthepresident@torontohydro.com. They'll review the background of your complaint and work with the appropriate Toronto Hydro department to provide a response, typically within two business days.

You can also reach the Customer Liaison by mail or fax:

Contact our Customer Advocate

If at this stage, your issue has still not been resolved to your satisfaction, you can request that your matter be escalated to our Customer Advocate by emailing advocate@torontohydro.com. The Toronto Hydro Customer Advocate is an independent function within Toronto Hydro committed to ensuring that all complaints are treated equitably, with regards to individual circumstances.

The Customer Advocate will confirm receipt of your information, typically within two business days, and will review your issue to ensure that:

  • Toronto Hydro’s internal processes and policies were applied fairly
  • All facts and evidence were incorporated in reaching the decision
  • Your complaint was addressed promptly
  • Comprehensive reasons were provided to support the decision

Toronto Hydro's Customer Advocate is committed to our corporate governance principles, and provides annual reporting to our Board of Directors and Ombudsman Toronto.

Contact Ombudsman Toronto and/or the Ontario Energy Board

If we're unable to resolve your complaint, you may bring your complaint to Ombudsman Toronto and/or our regulator, the Ontario Energy Board (OEB).

Ombudsman Toronto listens to and investigates complaints and concerns about City administration and unfairness in the delivery of City services, including at Toronto Hydro. They are independent and impartial, and their services are free and confidential.

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) regulates all aspects of Toronto Hydro’s distribution services, including rates.
