An independent and objective survey of Canadian employees and job-seekers has deemed Bruce Power to be one of the country’s most attractive employers.

“Bruce Power is honoured and thrilled to be named by Randstad Canada as one of the Top 15 companies in Canada,” said Cathy Sprague, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, at the Randstad Awards ceremony in Toronto, on May 1. “To receive such recognition in an independent survey of regular Canadians speaks to the attractiveness of Bruce Power as an employer and active member of the community, while highlighting our importance to Ontario’s energy sector.”

Randstad Canada questions 7,000 Canadians between the ages 18 and 65, asking for their views on the country’s 150 largest companies. The companies, which are selected through national statistics agencies, cannot request or subscribe to be included in the survey, making it completely independent. The Top 20 were recognized at the May 1 awards night, with Bruce Power being named the 14th best of the 150 in the survey.

“At Bruce Power, we use innovation both in the field and the boardroom to be a world leader in nuclear operations,” Sprague said. “We supply about a third of Ontario’s power, provide high-paying, skill-testing jobs in one of the province’s most beautiful regions, and provide an incredible benefits package, which includes about 82 per cent of employees investing their own money in the future of our business.”

The company’s site in Tiverton, Ontario is home to eight CANDU reactors, each one capable of generating enough low-cost, reliable, safe and clean electricity to meet the annual needs of a city the size of Hamilton. Formed in 2001, Bruce Power is an all-Canadian partnership among TransCanada, Cameco, Borealis Infrastructure Management (a division of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System) as well as the Power Workers’ Union and Society of Energy Professionals. A majority of Bruce Power’s employees are also owners in the business.
