"Hydro" means "electricity" in Canada.  I'd say because almost if not
all their power is produced by hydro-electrical plants and that all
power companies seem to have "hydro" in the name.

But nonetheless it's very, very confusing when you're new to the
country, looking for a place to rent and being told things such as
"hydro is included in the rent, but not water".  "Huh?"
