Looking for information and statistics on electricity pricing? In addition to the data found on Data World, CEA has created a section on PowerForTheFuture.ca that provide Canadians with background on what drives electricity pricing across the country. This section features an interactive map of Canada that compares the cost of electricity to the price of other products and services that Canadians buy. Click on your province or territory to view a chart comparing the average daily household cost of electricity to that of other goods and services, using data from Statistics Canada.
