Manitoba Hydro

 Manitoba Hydro is the province’s sole electrical and natural gas utility, evolving from the Winnipeg Gas Company founded in 1873 to its present state where it operates 16 hydroelectric generating stations and almost 11 000 km of transmission and distribution pipelines. These generating stations range as far north as the Lower Nelson River near the town of Gillam, and as far south as Seven Sisters. Harnessing the flow of the Nelson, Laurie, and Winnipeg Rivers, they boast a generating capacity of 6 100 megawatts. For reference, just over 11 000 watts can supply power to a single home.

 To this end, Manitoba Hydro employs the largest group of electrical, civil, and mechanical engineers of any company in the province. From transmission line engineering to operations studies to generation design, and beyond, Manitoba Hydro works to deliver reliable, clean, and cost-effective energy to its customers. It also provides an engineer-in-training rotation program to expose new graduates to various departments within the corporation.
