According to http://www.opg.com/power/thermal/repowering/

OPG has been exploring options to “repower” (change fuel in) some of its coal-fuelled electricity generating stations with natural gas and/or forest or agriculture-based biomass. Repowering these stations allows continued use of existing facilities owned by the people of Ontario, costs less than building new stations, reduces greenhouse gas...

This page contains resources about provinces that have set or are setting targets for reducing the carbon emissions generated by the generation of electricity.

Ontario - 50% nuclear. Phased out coal by 2014 (initially was 2007). Ontario’s target for energy from wind, solar and bioenergy is 10,700 MW (13%) by 2018 (excluding hydroelectric). Planning for 9,000 MW from hydro by 2018

Quebec - already nearly 100...
