Media Advisory - Learning and Photo Opportunity - Toronto Hydro-Electric
System's First 'Trade School' for Media

Utility Opens the Doors to its Training Centre

TORONTO, Nov. 23 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro-Electric System ("Toronto Hydro") invites Toronto media to attend an Electricity 101 course followed by 'tryouts' in the training facility. The electricity system can be confusing, so to make reporting about Toronto Hydro related topics easier we are inviting media to come and learn, ask questions and participate in trades-related activities.

    WHO    Toronto Hydro executives, professional instructors, apprentices in
           training, and local media.

    WHAT   One-hour course on the electrical system in Ontario; Toronto
           Hydro's system and equipment; public safety; power outages and
           restoration; sneak peek on 2010 capital investment plans; and our
           extensive employee training program. The session will conclude
           with a tour and hands-on demonstration - pole climbing and
           adventures in underground vaults at the training centre.

    WHERE  Toronto Hydro worksite at 500 Commissioners Street,
           Trades Training centre (Room 'D')

    WHEN   Wednesday, November 25
           9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

    WHY    Toronto Hydro operates one of the best and most comprehensive
           in-house electrical utility trades training centres in Canada. It
           is also one of the few utilities that are an accredited training
           delivery agent recognized by the Ontario Ministry of Training,
           Colleges and Universities. Media who attend will leave with a
           better understanding of Toronto Hydro and how it operates. As
           well, the outdoor event will provide good photo/visual

Space is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
