In pursuit of its mission to strengthen Canada’s electricity sector workforce, Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) initiates various projects and programs. All are designed by industry, for industry.
In other words, EHRC always works with partners within the industry to design and implement these initiatives. Our partners assist in numerous ways, whether sitting on steering committees, acting as research participants or providing financial support.
Projects are initiatives with a defined start and end date. They usually result in a study, curriculum or resource kit of some kind. In some cases, we’ve created microsites to provide in-depth details about the results.

- Bridging the Gap: Recruiting and retaining women in electricity
- Connected Women: A national mentorship model for women
- Curriculum for Wind Energy Industry: Teaching guide for educators
- Career Focus Initiative: Wage subsidy program

Conversely, programs are ongoing initiatives that aim to continually monitor or address human resource issues in the electricity industry. Like our projects, some of our programs have microsites that showcase their results.
