CCPPP Celebrates 20-Year Anniversary of Canada’s Largest Public-Private Partnership: Bruce Power

Twenty years ago today, Bruce Power made history, becoming Canada’s first private nuclear operator and the largest — and one of the most successful — public-private partnership (P3) projects in the country.

Since then, the company has become a leader in providing clean, reliable and affordable energy for Ontarians and life-saving isotopes for people around the world. It does this with a focus on innovation, a commitment to invest in its facilities and a desire to give back to the residents of its surrounding communities in a myriad of ways, including most recently during the pandemic by supporting food banks and providing PPE for front-line health workers.

“Bruce Power is a perfect example of the power of partnership exemplified in the P3 model,” said Mark Romoff, President and CEO of The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP). “With their long-term vision and a commitment to the community they have reinvigorated and transformed Bruce County both economically and socially and are international leaders in their field. Our Board of Directors and our Council members wish the 4,000-person team at Bruce Power continued success in their next 20 years of operation.”

In 2001, the Bruce Power Public-Private Partnership received the Gold Award for Infrastructure by CCPPP in its National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships, and it has proven worthy of that gold standard over the past two decades.
