Bruce Power


Overview

With a history of safe nuclear generation dating to 1967, Bruce Power currently supplies roughly 30% of Ontario’s electricity. In 2015, the plant entered into a long-term contract with the Provincial government extending its life to 2064, ensuring a stable source of carbon-free electricity for decades. This will see billions invested in refurbishments over the coming decades, providing hundreds of jobs for workers in surrounding communities.
