INTRODUCTION OUR SERVICES OUR WORKFORCE OUR ENVIRONMENTal INITIATIVES OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH OUR ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE OUR GOVERNANCE, COMPLIANCE AND BUSINESS CONDUCT Taking Our Grade Nines to Work Eighty-five grade nine students were taken on a behind-the-scenes tour of Toronto Hydro for the annual Take Our Kids to Work Day. As Canada’s largest municipal electric utility, there were many areas of the business to showcase to the students, including our warehouse, glove testing lab, fleet of electric vehicles, and trades school. Students were even provided a crash course on media relations and participated in an open forum about job preparation and career opportunities. For our efforts, Toronto Hydro received an honourable mention in The Learning Partnership’s Canada’s Outstanding Employer Awards. This is the second year in a row that Toronto Hydro was recognized by The Learning Partnership.
