Who Why

Is a General Not-For-Profit Incorporation based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.  Our volunteer board is made up of people who saw an opportunity to make a difference by having fun with the lights off!

The Blackout Day Challenge invites people in municipalities, businesses and communities to power down on August 14th, the anniversary of the Blackout that affected South-Eastern Canada and North-Eastern U.S.

Energy conservation is a critical issue and there are many ways for us to take even small actions to power down and make a big difference.

The time to act is now and the Blackout Day Group, along with its partners and supporters, are empowering people to power down on Blackout Day and every day!
