Darlington Nuclear strives to make a difference and help improve the well-being of the communities that host its operations. We believe this is essential to being a good corporate citizen and neighbour. Darlington Nuclear through the Corporate Citizenship Program (CCP) provides (charitable, not-for-profit) support to over 150 grass roots community initiatives on average annually in Clarington, and Oshawa.
Darlington Nuclear’s community partnerships focus on the areas of:
- Education, and community (health and safety, arts and culture, youth amateur sport, humanitarian and local causes)
- As well as support for Indigenous initiatives.
Darlington Nuclear’s community partnerships are diverse and include support of: Scientists in School, Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority, Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority - Durham Children’s Groundwater Festival, Visual Arts Centre of Clarington, Orono Fall Fair, Clarington Family Safety Day, Bowmanville Memorial Hospital Foundation, Newcastle Canada Day, Oshawa & Durham Region Métis Council’s Heritage Celebration, Hiawatha First Nation Pow Wow, student awards, along with numerous other initiatives.

The Darlington Nuclear Waterfront Trail is open year-round for hiking, biking and nature watching, and provides a home to a rich biodiversity of more than 1,000 species. The north section of the trail between Solina and Park Road is temporarily closed and will be reconstructed further south to accommodate Ministry of Transportation (MTO) infrastructure improvements. The south part of the loop, and the section between Park Road and Holt Road remain open.
Construction activities and tree removal around the entrance to Darlington Nuclear is due to the Ministry of Transportation 407 Phase 2/Holt Road interchange reconfiguration. Details can be found on the Highway 407 East website.
Darlington Community Advisory Council
The Darlington Community Advisory Council (CAC) is a committee of members from different sectors of the community, such as municipal government, business, and youth, who provide feedback on subjects of interest and concern to the community. The CAC is part of a wide-range community consultation and communication program for the generating station.
