Success Story

Tracy Primeau

Board of Directors, OPG

Tracy Primeau currently sits on the Ontario Power Generation Board of Directors where she chairs the Generation Oversight Committee as well as the WiN Canada Board, Ingenium, United College and University of Waterloo. She is Founder and Principal of Agile Bear, a consulting company focused on the global expansion of clean energy, with a special focus on extending its benefits to remote Indigenous communities across Canada and equity partnerships on the path to economic reconciliation.

Tracy began her career in 1990 at the Ontario Power Generation Pickering Nuclear Generating Station as a Nuclear Operator in Training and was qualified as a Nuclear Operator at Pickering A in 1992. Three years later, she moved home to Kincardine and became a qualified Nuclear Operator at Bruce A, progressing to Authorized Nuclear Operator and eventually to Shift Manager in 2010. She is one of the few women (and the only Indigenous one) to become a CNSC licensed operator at Bruce Power (the first at Bruce A) and the only female Shift Manager to work her way up from the shop floor.

Tracy’s involvement with WiN started when she was asked to attend the CNA conference in 2004 to help rejuvenate WiN-Canada and she was amazed by the women that she met there. She has yet to miss a conference! She enjoys sharing stories with others in the industry and proudly wears the mantle of role model. Tracy is the current Director of Outreach on the WiN Board.
