Smart Energy Leaders Dialogue

Working Group

Follow QUEST on

The Smart Energy Leaders Dialogue is a forum for senior executives and decision-makers from the Canadian energy industry, government, and related sectors to formulate a common understanding and develop critical insight on how we use, move and produce energy in communities across Canada with a focus on the development of Smart Energy Communities.

The Leaders Dialogue takes a holistic view of Canadian energy infrastructure and acknowledges that different participants within the energy value chain start with different understandings, challenges, and opportunities. Leaders Dialogue participants have regard for QUEST’s mission, vision, values, and undertake to draw on the QUEST principles to guide discussion and to maintain a balanced and informed perspective


Leaders Dialogue meetings use a salon-style format that includes active conversation, small group, and intimate setting and follow the Chatham House Rule.

It is a forum to discuss cross-cutting issues impacting policy, program, and business model activities related to how we use, move and produce energy in communities. For each session, Leaders Dialogue members are encouraged to identify potential speakers and guests to have as observers.

While the Leaders Dialogue traditionally holds one in-person meeting in Eastern, Central and Western Canada every year, all upcoming meetings will be virtual.
