Supporting communities

We power communities, communities power us

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) operates in every corner of the province. As part of our core values, we strive to be an engaged, productive member of every one of these communities. From public safety and environmental restoration, to youth outreach, local fundraisers, and Indigenous scholarships, OPG is lifting up our communities. Our power is a force for good.

Keeping communities safe is priority #1

With 66 hydro stations, 241 dams, and two nuclear stations, safety is OPG’s top priority. Learn how we are helping to educate the public and pursuing a safety-first culture across the province.

Territorial acknowledgment

Ontario is treaty territory. The province as we know it would not exist without the treaties, which set out the relationship between Indigenous peoples and the provincial and federal governments, and provide companies like OPG the ability to operate. By acknowledging the traditional Indigenous territories upon which OPG’s facilities are located, we are honouring the treaties and respecting the rights of Indigenous partners.

Protecting wild spaces and local wildlife

OPG understands the importance of natural ecosystems to local communities and works with our partners to protect habitats and preserve vulnerable wildlife populations.

What being a good corporate citizen means to OPG

OPG employees are proud members of the communities in which we operate. As a demonstration of our commitment, the Corporate Citizenship Program (CCP) has generated millions of dollars of local benefits for communities that host our facilities. Since 1999, the CCP has been proud to provide charitable, not-for-profit, and in-kind support to grassroots host community initiatives.

Our community citizenship is also reflected in the hundreds of hours many of our employees devote annually to volunteer work within their communities, and through the Employee and Pensioner Charity Campaign which raises around $2 million annually for charities of choice.
