Canada's electricity sector employs over 100,000 workers across the country. EHRC is here to provide valuable resources, programs, and support to ensure that Canada's electricity sector remains best-in-class.
Our work is driven by ongoing research in collaboration with our employer, labour, education, and government stakeholders. This research explores human resources challenges and opportunities facing Canada’s electricity sector. Our flagship research is our labour market intelligence (LMI) program, which analyzes broad trends in Canada’s labour markets and provides forecasting and planning opportunities for our stakeholders.Explore EHRC's Research
Canada’s electricity sector has room for improvement when it comes to diversity and inclusion. Our research shows that the sector is only 26% women, 5% Indigenous people, 5% workers under 25, and 3% persons with disabilities. To create equitable workplaces and ensure a sector where everyone can participate and succeed, Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) has developed many diversity and inclusion resources you can use at your workplace.Explore Diversity & Inclusion
The only thing that stays the same is change. The electricity sector is in the middle of an unprecedented wave of retirements from the baby boomers. At the same time, new technologies and occupations are disrupting the way work has traditionally been done. Managing the flow of people and roles is no easy task, but it’s essential to ensure that institutional knowledge are kept and work continues uninterrupted.Explore Change Management
With less than 5% of workers under the age of 25 and a drove of retirements at middle and senior levels, it’s more important than ever to bring more young workers into the electricity sector. EHRC works closely with the federal government to build programs that ensure youth have employment opportunities and employers are financially able to hire them.Explore Youth Employment Funding
Training and development is an ongoing priority for every worker in electricity. From keeping old skills sharp to developing new ones, T&D is a continual process. Keeping workers up-to-date in their skills takes planning and coordination. EHRC has developed reseources that employers can use to build out their T&D programs and keep their employees at the top of their game.Explore Training & Development
Ensuring the resilience of Canada’s electricity sector requires industry, educators, training institutions, regulatory authorities and policy makers to have an in-depth understanding of the current and forecasted competencies in a rapidly changing labour market. EHRC’s National Occupational Standards (NOS) address this need by providing comprehensive skills analysis for a variety of current and emerging occupations.Explore the NOS
