At TransCanada, we don’t just build energy infrastructure. We also build relationships.
Breakfast Club of Canada is a national organization that delivers healthy breakfasts in a safe and supportive environment to vulnerable children in communities across Canada. Since 2014, TransCanada has donated over $320,000 to Breakfast Club of Canada to launch or sustain the program in 10 schools in B.C. and Ontario. As a neighbour to the communities in and around our operations and projects areas, TransCanada believes we have a role to play in ensuring youth receive the nutrition they need to succeed.
Whether it’s partnering with community groups, supporting local initiatives or encouraging our employees to be involved in their neighbourhoods, the goal of our Community Investment Program is to build strong and vibrant communities across North America.
Giving back to the communities where we operate always has been and always will be part of our everyday culture. It’s all part of being an employer of choice, a good neighbour and a trusted community partner.
We concentrate our community investment efforts in three focus areas: safety, community and environment.
In 2015, TransCanada directed more than $14.7 million to over 1,400 non-profit organizations across North America.
Meanwhile, through Empower, our giving and volunteering program, our employees and contractors – combined with TransCanada’s matching contribution – donated more than $2.57 million to charities across North America to support the communities where they live and work in 2015.
In addition to these generous donations, employees logged 9,151 volunteer hours with registered charities in their communities.Back to Top
