Corporate Responsibility

Community Investment

At Canadian Natural, we have a strong commitment to invest in the communities where we live and work. We support initiatives that help improve the quality of life in those communities.

Working together with these communities is an important part of our commitment to responsible operations, which also promotes long-term local economic growth and prosperity.

Corporate Giving Program

Our community investment programs respond to the priorities identified by our stakeholders to meet their visions for the future. In 2014, we provided $10.6 million in community investments including corporate sponsorships, cash donations, employee giving, in-kind donations and funding for community-based economic development projects. Highlights of our community investments and donations can be found in our cultural and social events including trade shows, career fairs, science and student fairs, winter festivals and Aboriginal cultural celebrations. In addition to that, we sponsor hot lunch programs in schools and provide funding for Christmas and holiday celebrations for communities near our Canadian operations. We work with communities on joint community development programs, including health and wellness initiatives tailored to their needs.

Employee Contributions and Volunteering

Our company takes great pride in helping build stronger communities and providing diverse opportunities for employees to play a role in those efforts. We are proud of our many employees who donate valuable time to assist with community projects. Canadian Natural's supports employee volunteering in many ways: through corporate matching of funds raised for selected programs and initiatives, management support of national campaigns such as United Way and providing company time. We believe that by doing this we can help build stronger, healthier communities. Read about our employee-run initiatives here
