July 1st marks the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation, and communities throughout the region are celebrating in style.

Earlier this year, Bruce Power’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program donated over $70,000 to numerous local organizations that are holding events to honour Canada’s birthday.

Bruce Power is proud to be 100 per cent Canadian-owned and wishes everyone a safe and fun-filled Canada Day weekend.
