Assisting Families, Seniors and Others in Need
Our teams work with neighbouring communities to understand their priorities and support grassroots efforts. Some of our recent initiatives included:
- From Western Canada to our International operations, employees donate much needed hampers and gifts to families, seniors and food banks every year. For example, through our Adopt-a-Family program, in 2021 we sponsored 20 families, 30 seniors, and 20 other individuals, helping make some of their Christmas wishes come true. Our Calgary Adopt-a-Family program started more than two decades ago.
- In 2021, we collected 1,145 stuffed animals for our 25th annual campaign supporting the Rainbow Society Teddy Bear Drive. The stuffed animals are donated by employees every year to children and families in need.
- Canadian Natural is one of the largest donors from the oil and natural gas sector in Alberta and Northwest Territories under the Canadian Blood Services ‘Partners for Life’ program. We have been part of this program since 2005. In 2021, employees donated 977 units of blood, including donors from Calgary, oil sands operations and other field locations. These donations helped save the lives of up to 3,000 people.
