Central Ontario Communities

A number of Ontario Power Generation’s Central Ontario facilities have been part of their local communities for more than 100 years – like the Sills Generating Station, which started production in 1900. These stations, their employees and host communities play an important role in helping generate clean, reliable power for Ontario.

See how we are a part of communities across Central Ontario and learn about our many local programs, initiatives and events.

Generating power with purpose

Our role in Ontario isn’t just measured by kilowatts (although we’re really good at producing them); it’s measured by our relationships, the impact we make and the future we leave to the next generation. That’s why we strive to be good corporate citizens who care about the environmental, economic and social wellbeing of all Ontario.

Generating community spirit

OPG’s Corporate Citizenship Program focuses on these areas:

  • Environment
  • Education, and
  • Community (health and safety, arts and culture, youth amateur sport, humanitarian and local causes), including support of Indigenous initiatives.

We are proud to support our many community partners and events in Central Ontario like the Gravenhurst Winter Carnival, the Campbellford Incredible Edibles Festival, and the Peterborough Children’s Water Festival.
