  • The Working Mind © training to advance the conversation on supporting mental health

Internal Job Assignments

FortisAlberta employees have the opportunity to apply for temporary internal job assignments (acting assignments) that allow them to take on new roles and responsibilities within a different department for up to 12 months. At the end of these assignments, employees bring their new skills and knowledge back to their teams. Acting assignments are one way FortisAlberta supports the growth of our employees and ensures our teams are well-rounded and knowledgeable about different aspects of our business operations.






Customer Care Training

FortisAlberta’s Customer Service team is based in Airdrie, Alberta and welcomes a number of new Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) each year. To prepare them, new CSRs receive six (6) weeks of full-time paid training to ensure our team can quickly and effectively meet the needs of our customers.
