Why Join

Being a Power Pioneer gives you opportunities to stay connected and involved.

Many members enjoy being active in events and projects with Branch members, BC Hydro and our communities. Power Pioneers keep in touch with each other through monthly meetings, social activities, volunteer community events, and through our website.

Our members are often busy with travels, family and hobbies. So we understand if you have little or no time to participate or volunteer. You’ll find the Power Pioneers very flexible and glad to see you whenever it fits your schedule. You can be involved as much or as little as you like, and you’ll still get value from your membership.

Who Can Join

If you are a retiree or employee of BC Hydro or its affiliated companies, we invite you and your spouse to become members by clicking on the JOIN US tab in the top right corner of the website. Please indicate whether you are currently an employee, retiree, spouse or associate.
