Newfoundland Power was proud to be a Games Sponsor for the 2016 Newfoundland & Labrador Summer Games. The Games were hosted by the Town of Conception Bay South on August 13 - 21, 2016. Up to 1,500 athletes, officials and coaches, plus parents and volunteers were welcomed to our town. These Summer Games showcased everything CBS has to offer and provided young athletes from across the province an opportunity to shine.
For over 30 years, Newfoundland Power has partnered with fire departments throughout the province to deliver fire fighter electrical safety training. We also partner with the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Fire Services through our support of the Learn Not to Burn fire safety curriculum for elementary schools.Visit NL Fire Services
Over 40 of our employees, retirees and family members got into the holiday spirit at the Downtown St. John’s Christmas Parade on Sunday, November 27, 2016. They walked the parade route collecting food and money for the Community Food Sharing Association. Over 16,000 pounds of food, valued at approximately $40,000, and more than $8,000 was collected during this holiday tradition. This overwhelming response will go a long way in keeping food banks full this time of year to help those less fortunate.
The 10th annual Motorcycle Ride for Dad began from the Kenmount Road parking lot on June 17. It was a tremendous success with over 500 motorcycles participating. Over $120,000 was raised from biker pledges and corporate sponsorships.

We once again partnered with the VOCM Cares Foundation and local community partners to support the VOCM Cares Coats for Kids Campaign. Our area offices opened their doors as drop-off locations for the collection of usable coats, hats and mittens that will be used to keep children warm this winter.
