Toronto was hit by a massive ice storm in late December that left more than 300,000 residents without power over the holidays.

In response, Toronto Hydro dedicated all available resources to restore power as quickly as possible. Hydro crews — in collaboration with mutual assistance partners flown in from out of province — worked around the clock to clear debris and restore power. Ultimately, the cleanup effort lasted 13 days.
