OPG’s Pickering Nuclear Generating Station is located on the shore of Lake Ontario in the City of Pickering and has been a proud and engaged member of the community for more than 40 years.
Pickering 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. Pickering Nuclear through the Corporate Citizenship Program (CCP) provides (charitable, not-for-profit) support to over 140 grass roots community initiatives on average annually in Pickering, Ajax and Whitby.
Pickering 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); and
- Support for First Nations and Métis initiatives.
Pickering Nuclear’s community partnerships are diverse and include support of: Scientists in School, Environmental Earth Angel’s Virtual Biodiversity School Education Program, Abilities Centre Durham, Ajax Creative Arts, Whitby Harbour Days, Pickering Winterfest, Durham City Basketball Association, Durham Farm Connections, and the Rouge Valley Health System Foundation – Ajax & Pickering Site, Lakeridge Health Whitby, student awards, along with numerous other initiatives.

In recent years, Pickering Nuclear has been recognized for its environmental and civic leadership by the City of Pickering and Town of Ajax Civic Award. The awards also recognize OPG's continued commitment to community activities on our own property, including biodiversity and tree planting days, and weekly summer family activities as part of our Tuesdays on the Trail program.
