Energizing Life Initiative
Donations & Sponsorships
We're raising awareness of local organizations who are putting the safety and well-being of Ontarians at the forefront.
We're proud to announce the 35 grant recipients who are energizing life in their communities by addressing urgent social needs. Know an organization that's making a positive impact?
Since 2000, Hydro One has provided important support to help the ACT Foundation train more than 2 million high school students in CPR. The Foundation has already established the CPR program in more than 1,800 high schools and more than 4.6 million youth across Canada have been trained to date. ACT raises funds for CPR mannequins and AED training units for all high schools, trains teachers as CPR instructors for their students, and guides schools in program set up.
In 2020, we partnered with the Coaches Association of Ontario to launch Safe Sport 101, a virtual resource hub providing safety tools and resources for coaches so they can keep sport safe, fun and inclusive as we return to sport from COVID-19, and moving forward. The partnership also debuted the Hydro One Safe Play award, as part of CAO's annual Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards.
In 2020, we supported Feed Ontario’s COVID-19 Emergency Food Box Program, donating equivalent of 300,000 meals. With the help of our community, we were able to donate an additional 51,000 meals to those in need. We’re proud to build on our partnership this year and continue helping those in need across Ontario.
Through our partnership with Jack.org, we are addressing a growing demand for mental health resources. The partnership brings free virtual mental health talks (Jack Talks) to young people and their families across Ontario at a time when calls and texts to Kids Help Phone have increased by 300 percent. The talks are delivered by trained youth speakers and use a peer-to-peer approach to educate youth audiences on key mental health concepts, taking care of their own mental health, supporting each other, and how to get involved in Jack.org’s youth mental health revolution.
Scouting isn’t an activity or setting—it’s a discovery. In partnership with Hydro One, Scouts Canada is able to provide free engaging activity resources for families and further our No One Left Behind (NOLB) subsidy program. Our contributions to vibrant communities are ongoing with Hydro One’s support, and our culture of safety has expanded through extended through programming.
