Life at Hydro Ottawa

Hydro Ottawa values the different perspectives, experiences and backgrounds of all of our employees.

It starts with our deep roots in our community, having provided an essential service to homes and businesses in the National Capital Region for over 100 years. With that heritage comes an expectation that we will be a good neighbour – engaged, responsive, willing to lend a hand, and a good steward of the environment we all share. 

Whether it’s our ongoing employee-led workplace fundraising campaign for the United Way, community sponsorships like the Hydro Ottawa Special Needs Day at the Capital Fair or simply lending a hand with community improvements, we are committed to supporting the communities we serve. And in line with that belief, we encourage our employees to use one paid volunteer day per year to do the same.

Committed to a Better Tomorrow

Our country is faced with an urgent need to adapt and transition towards a sustainable energy future.

In the middle of that transition is the electricity sector, which as a result is exhibiting rapid growth in the renewable energy space as we work towards hitting federally-established goals to reverse the effects of climate change.

As a leader, we are working towards our own ambitious goal of achieving net-zero operations by 2030. Our creative, innovative and forward-thinking employees are blazing the trail to a better tomorrow.

Building a Diverse and Inclusive Workforce

Hydro Ottawa is committed to employing a diverse workforce that better reflects the communities we serve; we want our employees to be their true selves. Employee-driven diversity committees encourage dialogue on creating and supporting an inclusive workplace that welcomes and celebrates diversity. We support organizations that work towards equity and inclusion for underrepresented groups including those that encourage girls and women to pursue careers in STEM and the skilled trades.
