Northeastern Ontario communities

Ontario Power Generation has been a part of Northeastern Ontario for over 100 years, and today we have 14 hydroelectric generating stations in operation. These stations, their employees, our host communities, and our First Nation partners play an important role in helping generate clean, reliable power for Ontario.

See how we are a part of communities across Northeastern 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 Northeastern Ontario like Science Timmins, Nishnawabe Aski Development Fund, and Timmins and Area Women in Crisis Shelter.
