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.
