FortisOntario committed to preserving the history of its communities

The companies that make up FortisOntario are geographically separated but share the commitment to support the communities in which they work and live. FortisOntario’s Algoma Power donated $52,000 towards the restoration of the Wawa Goose landmark. The Wawa Goose was first created to attract travellers off the newly constructed Trans-Canada Highway, remaining the main purpose of the historic monument.
