2013 was a record year for wind energy development in Canada with new installed capacity from 23 wind energy projects totaling nearly 1,600 MW, ranking 5th globally for new installed capacity.

Canada finished 2013 with 7,802.72 MW of total installed capacity—supplying approximately 3 per cent of Canada’s electricity demand with enough power to meet the needs of over 2 million Canadian homes.

In 2013, wind energy projects were built and commissioned in the Canadian provinces of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia and Saskatchewan. At the end of 2013, Ontario and Quebec led the country in total installed capacity with close to 2,500 MW each.
