History

Leading Canada’s
Renewable Energy Evolution

Decades of Growth and Transformation

Evolugen’s Canadian heritage dates from the 1970’s when its parent company, Brookfield Renewable (then known as Brascan), owned and operated 12 hydropower facilities in Ontario. Headquartered in Gatineau, within the National Capital Region, it was in 1999 that Evolugen truly flourished by establishing a publicly traded entity in the renewable energy industry with three hydro stations located along the Lièvre River, QC. Following two decades of growth, the appointment of Josée Guibord as CEO in 2018 and the launch of our new identity in 2019, we have strengthened and honed Evolugen’s focus on developing and operating our renewable energy portfolio in Canada.

Located in close proximity to Parliament, Evolugen’s head office is home to approximately 450 high-calibre professionals, who serve multiple Brookfield Renewable companies. Here, our team manages all our Canadian renewable power facilities, in addition to pursing development opportunities across the country.

Our portfolio of facilities and our development expertise in hydro, wind, solar and storage enable us to accelerate Canada towards a low-carbon future by powering both its vibrant metropolitan areas and remote, close-knit communities.
