A diverse and inclusive workplace.

At Ontario Power Generation (OPG), we embrace diversity in its broadest sense – making it an integral part of our business practice. This means providing opportunities for all employees to broaden their horizons, expand their interests and increase their capabilities. It means providing policies and programs to help you take care of things at work, at home, and in the community. And it means being – and encouraging our employees to be – caring members of our community. We work hard to ensure our workplaces are inclusive and accessible to all employees, enabling them to perform their jobs well and achieve their full potential.

Diversity Programs and Initiatives

Diversity at OPG extends well beyond welcoming members of designated employment equity groups, though it means that, too. As a result, you will find a wide variety of both corporate and employee-driven programs and initiatives that highlight our commitment to diversity:

  • Corporate and Site Diversity Committees
  • Indigenous Circle
  • Scholarships and Awards (including emPOWERed Women Mentoring Program)
  • Special Events and Campaigns
  • Mentoring Plus

Employment Equity & Self ID

OPG is committed to an equitable workplace where everyone has equal access to opportunities. This commitment is reflected in our programs and initiatives that are focused on providing employment equity for women, Indigenous people, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities. Applicants are encouraged to self-identify in the application process by filling out our online employment equity questionnaire and should also identify whether they belong to more than one of the designated groups. All information collected is confidential and will support programs and initiatives related to supporting an equitable OPG.

Accessibility

Using the accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) as a starting point, OPG works towards preventing and removing barriers and actively seeks ways to improve opportunities for persons with disabilities. We value the contributions of all employees and believe in integration and equal opportunity. This is why we ensure that our policies include the accommodation of special needs and are committed to meeting these needs in a timely manner.
