Supporting local communities

Providing essential energy is the cornerstone to delivering the vital services and resources needed to support communities

To do that, we buy locally, support small businesses and partner with Indigenous peoples to create opportunities that meet their individual community needs.

  • Our operations produce several direct and indirect economic benefits for communities and governments by supporting thousands of jobs and creating business opportunities for local suppliers.
  • Our tax dollars support essential government services such as schools, roads and hospitals.
  • Our community giving program, Build Strong, supports hundreds of local non-profit and charitable organizations and offer scholarships to help build the next generation of leaders.
