We are a company with a clear vision, a solid mission and a culture built on core values that define how we do business.

We’ve given a lot of thought to who we are as a company and what culture we want to create. We’ve given a lot of thought to what will attract and retain the best, and what we can do to ensure there is always room to grow, to learn, and to be challenged.


What we offer:


Compensation and Benefits

We offer a flex benefits package that lets you choose the benefits and coverage that are right for you, in combination with company-paid Long Term Disability Premiums.



We encourage independence, accountability, and innovation. We question the status quo, celebrate our successes and support a work environment that adopts new ideas and best practices.  We encourage open communications and the sharing of ideas and opinions at all levels of the organization.

Career Growth

We believe in nurturing and creating leaders from within. We believe Capital Power offers the potential for a life-time rewarding career and we believe in rewarding performance and celebrating successes.


Work/Life Balance

We encourage top performance over working longer hours. Vacations are meant to be taken—and enjoyed, and our vacation policy requires our employees to take time away to enjoy life outside of work. We recognize you have a life outside of work and ensure personal or scheduled days are available for you to take care of personal or family matters.


Positive Working Environment

We challenge the way we do things. We support innovative, dialogue, and open communication. We reward performance and celebrate success. We want our employees to find life at work, not just make a living at work.



We believe strong leaders cultivate strong performance. We offer and encourage leadership training and development and have succession plans to develop leaders and ensure everyone has the resources required to be competent, effective leaders.
