As a large company and a primary employer in many Ontario communities, Ontario Power Generation takes seriously its responsibility to be a good corporate citizen and neighbour. We believe that good corporate citizenship is directly based on operating our electricity generating facilities in a safe, efficient, productive and reliable manner. We also believe that a good company gives back to the communities in which it operates, to help improve the quality of life in those communities.
Through OPG's Corporate Citizenship Program (CCP), we demonstrate our commitment to the well-being of the host communities where we operate. OPG supports more than 1,100 small grassroots charitable / not-for-profit CCP community investment initiatives each year, including about 250 student awards across our site communities. With average annual contributions totaling $2.5 million, approximately 80 per cent of our community investments are between $100 and $2,500. While we believe community investment is essential to being a good corporate citizen, we are always mindful of the need to ensure each dollar invested leverages good value for the community.
Our community investment support is targeted to the CCP primary funding focus areas of:
- Education, and community (health and safety, arts and culture, youth amateur sport, humanitarian and local causes)
- As well as support for First Nations and Métis initiatives.
We are proud of our commitment to encourage and support the important work of our community partners. It is the effort and initiative of these groups and organizations that help make Ontario a great place to live and truly demonstrates the power of community.
