Power Up Your Future with a Career at Hydro Ottawa!

Wherever you’re working today, Hydro Ottawa has a great opportunity worth considering. Ask our people what it’s like to work here and here’s what they’ll tell you.

By distributing and generating reliable and sustainable electricity and working to conserve energy, each one of us plays a part in empowering the lives of our customers. Our work means lights on in the classroom or workplace, heat warming cold winter nights, stoves working for family dinners – it means all the activities that make up our lives are there when we need them. It’s one reason why we’re one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers.

Hydro Ottawa is about people. We’re a family that values the different perspectives, experiences and backgrounds of our employees. We focus on friendly and supportive relationships with one another. That means everything from smiles and hellos in the hallways to holiday parties with the kids. It means asking about your weekend and taking care of each other in times of need.

We have deep roots in our community, and are established from companies that provided an essential service to homes and businesses for over 100 years. With that heritage comes an expectation that we will be a good neighbour – engaged, responsive, willing to lend a hand, and a good steward of the environment we all share. Check out some of the initiatives that have made us one of Canada’s Greenest Employers.

There’s all this and so much more to working at Hydro Ottawa. We place a high priority on protecting the health and safety of our employees and our community. We provide safe work practices training for all employees consistent with industry best practices, and our company's safety performance is solid.

In a stable industry, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package including medical, dental and vision care; disability and life protection; a defined benefit pension plan; a wellness program that includes on-site fitness facilities, and in line with our belief in community, one paid volunteer day per year. Take a look at some of the volunteer activities employees have chosen to participate in here.

You’re the kind of person who believes that what you do is more than just a job – and you’re looking to be a part of a team that believes that, too.

Hydro Ottawa is committed to establishing a qualified workforce that reflects the diverse population it serves and we encourage applications from all qualified individuals. We are also committed to preventing and removing barriers to employment for people with disabilities, and we invite you to contact us with questions about accessibility or accommodation.
