  • Guaranteed Investment
  • Fixed Income Funds
  • Balanced Funds
  • Canadian Equity Funds
  • Newalta Shares

A second tier of the Savings Plan allows for payroll deductions for additional contributions to the same selection of funds.

Employee Wellness

We have a long-term commitment to creating an environment of positive health habits, both physical and mental. Balance between work and family is important.

Our confidential Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) helps employees and family members identify and understand sources of personal difficulties and develop necessary coping strategies.
