Strong, safe communities

As a publicly-owned generator, Ontario Power Generation strives to be an engaged and productive community member, ensuring public safety and helping to contribute to host community well-being.

See how we operate with transparency, which we believe is an essential part of being a good corporate citizen and neighbour.

Powered by communities

OPG owns and operates generating stations in communities across Ontario from Kenora to Cornwall. As a separate generating company, we’ve been around for 20 years, but our history of service, through our predecessor companies including Ontario Hydro, goes back for more than 100 years. For OPG and our employees, being a part of the community is about much more than safely generating electricity. It’s about being engaged community members who encourage and support local organizations and initiatives that help keep our communities strong and healthy.

The Corporate Citizenship Program (CCP) is one way OPG demonstrates its commitment to the well-being of the communities that host our facilities. Since 1999, OPG through the CCP, has been proud to provide community investment (charitable, not-for-profit, and in-kind) support to 800+ host community initiatives annually.

Power of partnerships

We are committed to each and every one of our communities.

We’re proud to support the important work of our many community partners like Scientists in School who bring free workshops to students in low-income communities to discover the fun side of science, technology, engineering, math, and the environment.

Corporate and community citizenship

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 about $2 million annually for charities of choice.

OPG also is committed to building and growing long-term, mutually beneficial working relationships with Indigenous communities near our current and future operations in Ontario. Our Indigenous Relations group helps build these relationships in keeping with OPG’s Indigenous Relations Policy.

Beyond our partnerships and initiatives, OPG understands our most important job is to ensure the safety of the public and our staff.

With 66 hydroelectric stations and 241 dams on 24 river systems, and 2 nuclear stations, ensuring safety systems, emergency preparedness plans and public education remains a significant, ongoing focus and our number one priority.
