Thank you for supporting Bruce Power’s Role in
Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan
The Ministry of Energy has ended the public consultation aspect of its Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP).
Thank you to the 6,743 people who signed the petition to support Bruce Power’s role as an eight-unit site in the next LTEP. With your support, we hope the Ministry of Energy will continue to recognize Bruce Power’s role of providing 30% of Ontario’s electricity at 30% less than the average residential price of power, while creating jobs and investing billions into the province’s economy.
Thank you once again from the organizations involved in this website – the Bruce Power Pensioners Association, Canadian Nuclear Workers’ Council, the Grey Bruce Labour Council, North American Young Generation Nuclear, the Power Workers’ Union, The Society of Energy Professionals and the Bruce Chapter of Women in Nuclear-Canada.

- Bruce Power currently provides 30% of Ontario’s electricity at 30% less than the average residential price of power.
- Bruce Power will invest $13 billion into the Bruce site over the next two decades, extending the life of the facility to 2064. These assets remain owned by the people of Ontario and are under long-term lease to Bruce Power.
- Refurbishing Bruce Power’s units will ensure a stable, reliable, cost-effective and carbon-free supply of electricity for the people of Ontario through 2064.
- Securing the long-term future of the Bruce site will create or sustain 22,000 direct and indirect jobs annually across Ontario, and inject $4 billion into the province’s economy through the direct and indirect spending on operational equipment, supplies, materials and labour income.
- All money invested in Units 3-8 will come from the owners of Bruce Power – not the Ontario Government.
- Bruce Power was essential to the phase out of coal-fired electricity in Ontario. In fact, 70% of the additional energy needed to phase out coal was provided by Bruce Power.
