The Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) is an organisation described as the voice for wind energy, solar energy and energy storage solutions that will power Canada’s energy future. Its members are positioned to deliver clean, low-cost, reliable, flexible and scalable solutions.

Alberta — The Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) is proud to launch Clean Energy Jobs Canada | Emplois Énergie Propre Canada at CanREA’s annual conference (Electricity Transformation Canada).

Clean Energy Jobs Canada aims to help accelerate the recruitment of more skilled workers into the growing renewables and energy storage industries. There are nearly 1 million vacant jobs in Canada right now. And across this nation, wind, solar and energy-storage companies need skilled workers—many today, and even more tomorrow—as the renewables industry expands operations to help achieve Canada’s 2035 and 2050 net-zero goals.

“Our new Clean Energy Jobs Canada site is a crucial part of CanREA’s mission to grow this country’s wind, solar and energy-storage industries. As part of our national workforce strategy, we aim to build the clean energy workforce of the future,” said Vittoria Bellissimo, CanREA’s President and CEO.

CanREA’s new careers website connects employers and job seekers, showcasing exciting career opportunities to help accelerate the recruitment of more skilled workers into the growing renewables and energy storage industries.

Job seekers can post their CVs, search for current openings across Canada, apply for jobs, create personal job alerts and more. Employers can post job openings and search a database of qualified candidates, targeting their recruitment efforts to Canada’s go-to clean energy careers site.

CanREA member companies get complimentary job postings in 2023 and discounted posts in 2024.

“We know that the number of people interested in renewables is higher than it’s ever been, and we have heard from our member companies that there is a crying need for workers, so CanREA has built this website to try to connect those dots,” said Mathieu Côté, Director of CanREA’s Operations Program. “Clean Energy Jobs Canada aims to move people from ‘interested’ to ‘employed’ in this industry.”

As part of the initiative, CanREA is also launching a series of Clean Energy Career Profiles, showcasing a day in the life of individual Canadian wind turbine technicians, solar farm electricians, energy storage workers and other professionals working in the clean energy sector. These profiles describe what they do, how they got into this line of work, and what advice they have for others looking to work in the sector.

For example, Dan McSween, an Operations Supervisor at TriSummit Utilities Inc. in British Columbia, says: “Renewables are the future! It is a very malleable industry and skills from all different backgrounds can become an asset to a lot of organizations.”
