Northwestern Ontario communities

Ontario Power Generation’s Northwestern Operations include one operating biomass and 11 hydroelectric stations. Together they provide about 900 megawatts (MW) of power, which accounts for 86% of the electricity used in the Northwest.

These stations, their employees and local host communities play an important role in generating clean, reliable power for Ontario.

See how we are a part of communities across Northwestern 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 of our many community partnerships in Northwestern Ontario, which include the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life, the Atikokan High School Voyageur Robotics Team, the City of Thunder Bay Events Program, the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority's Annual Children's Water Festival, and Lieutenant Governor of Ontario's Indigenous Youth Summer Reading Camp Program operated by Frontier College.
