Working with us
Across Emera, safety is always our first priority. This applies to our operations and our team. By offering a range of services and programs, we're providing a safe and healthy place to come to work everyday.
We consistently strive to maintain inclusive, diverse and respectful workplaces where everyone is treated fairly and with dignity. We also support the growth and development of our team members through opportunities for advancement and education.
We believe innovation is critical in the energy industry and we take pride in our collaborative work spaces designed to help foster new ideas. Many new ideas come from students, which is why we offer a robust co-op and internship program across our companies.
We're also committed to giving back to the places where we live and work. Through our Community Investment Program, we're helping to build safer, stronger and more innovative communities.
Investing in our Team
Across Emera, we know our success is driven by our strong, dedicated team.
We support our team in developing the skills and attributes they need to become our leaders of tomorrow. We do this in a number of ways including formal education, work experiences and mentorship opportunities. We sponsor in-class and online learning and offer a wide range of courses through our internal e-learning program. We also support and encourage career growth through advancement across Emera and our operating companies.
Inclusive and Diverse
We believe an inclusive workplace and a diverse workforce make our business stronger. They help us attract and retain the best people, support an engaged and productive team and bring fresh perspectives and new ideas to the table.
For us, inclusion is about identifying, addressing and removing barriers from our processes and policies. We believe a workplace must be inclusive in order to foster real diversity.
Every member of our team has the right to feel valued and to feel safe and supported at work. We are all responsible for building and maintaining a workplace where everyone is treated with respect, dignity and fairness and where all employees feel empowered to speak-up and know they will be supported. This is central to our corporate culture, starting with our leadership and extending across all levels of the company.
Committed to Communities
We're committed to giving back to the places where we live and work. Through our community investment program, we're helping to build stronger, safer and more innovative communities.
We also provide a Good Neighbour Program that gives our team members access to fundraising-matching and charitable donations for volunteered time. We offer annual scholarships for employees' children and meaningful opportunities to volunteer with community organizations.

We are all responsible for helping to preserve the safety, health and wellness of others. We are committed to providing a healthy workplace and offer a range of services, programs and incentives to support this commitment.
