Approximately 100,000 Canadians are involved in the generation, transmission and distribution of one of our country’s essential utilities: electricity. Their work powers homes and businesses across the country, fuelling everything from light bulbs, cell phones and refrigerators to water treatment plants and road vehicle assembly lines.

Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) provides support to this dedicated workforce by collaborating with industry employers and other stakeholders to research and resolve human resource and workplace development issues.
