Bracebridge Generation
You are here :: About Us

On October 5, 1894 the Bracebridge Village Council purchased a water power generating plant to supply electricity to the community and in so doing made Bracebridge the pioneer in municipal hydro-electric generation in Canada. The generator was 84 kilowatts and housed in the building which still stands at Bird’s Mill.

In 1911 the first Water, Light and Sewer Commission was elected. In 1972 it was changed to the Bracebridge Hydro-Electric Power Commission with sole responsibility for electricity distribution, generation and affiliated services. In the year 2000 these generation assets were incorporated under Bracebridge Generation Ltd., owned by the local municipalities and managed by a board of directors.
