Diversity drives innovation

A workforce that’s reflective of Ontario
OPG’s diverse group of employees represents a wide range of people from nearly every trade, profession and skill set.
We encourage a culture of respect and we value each person's diversity, unique background, experience, perspective and talents.
Our employees take pride in providing high value to electricity consumers by producing safe, clean, reliable and low-cost electricity. OPG strives to do this in a manner that exemplifies the company’s values of safety, integrity, excellence and citizenship.

Improving equality, diversity and inclusion
OPG is committed to representing those who have experienced historic disadvantage (women, Indigenous peoples, visible minorities and persons with disabilities).
To improve the diversity of Ontario’s new grads and potential employees, we’ve negotiated funding agreements with our educational institution partners requiring them to proactively seek out diverse representation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program applicant pools.
In speaking to potential employees, we consider representation in our recruiting materials and staffing to demonstrate that OPG is a welcoming company for everyone.
Recognizing the systemic barriers potential employees face as they advance through the recruiting process, we enhanced our hiring manager training program to include education on how to recognize bias and the impacts bias can have on hiring decisions. We try to have diverse hiring panels that reflect the diversity we’re looking to attract.
OPG is constantly striving to make our work environment both welcoming and inclusive. We are committed to advancing a culture that embraces the unique perspectives of each individual and allows everyone to feel like they belong.
Strength in diversity
