Eastern Operations in the community
OPG operates 10 hydroelectric generating stations in the Ottawa and St. Lawrence Valleys. Some of these facilities have been proud and engaged members of the community for almost a century.
OPG's Eastern Operations strives to make a difference and help improve the well-being of the communities that host its operations. We believe this is essential to being a good corporate citizen and neighbour. Through the Corporate Citizenship Program (CCP), Eastern Operations provides (charitable, not-for-profit) support to over 125 grass roots community initiatives on average annually in the Madawaska, Ottawa and St. Lawrence River Valleys.
Eastern Operations' community partnerships focus on the areas of:
- Education, and community (health and safety, arts and culture, youth amateur sport, humanitarian and local causes); and
- Support for Indigenous initiatives.
Eastern Operations’ community partnerships are diverse and include support of: Deep River Science Academy, United Counties Science Fair, St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences, Lost Villages Historical Society, Cornwall Arts In the Park, Seaway Valley Minor Hockey Association, Mattawa Women’s Resource Centre, Pembroke / Renfrew County Crimestoppers, Arnprior Fall Fair, the Akwesasne International Pow Wow, student awards, along with numerous other initiatives.
OPG's St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre is located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River in the west end of Cornwall, Ontario. This environmentally-friendly building offers 13,000 square feet of fun and is a great outing for students and families.
