The People Bringing Our Vision to Life
Compliance & Licensing – Sault Ste. Marie, ON
In managing operational compliance for Ontario and Quebec, I have the opportunity to support local projects that protect the environment. Through some of these initiatives, I work with researchers, scientists and regulators to better understand how our operations interact with the environment, enabling us to mitigate or eliminate our environmental impact through well-informed decisions.
Operations – Powell River, BC
As part of the Operations team, I oversee all operations and maintenance work on our hydro stations in British Columbia, promoting our strong health and safety culture in every aspect of our work. In our daily management, my team and I look to protect and enhance the biodiversity of the lakes and river systems affected by our operations, and take pride in caring for facilities that have been part of the local community for almost a century.
Operations – Lièvre River, QC
As Senior Manager of Operations in Quebec, I have the pleasure of working with a fantastic team. Together, we ensure the efficient operation of our Lièvre hydro stations through upgrade and maintenance projects. In doing so, we continuously emphasize the health and safety of our employees and the public, as well as the protection of the environment.
