Indigenous Peoples Community Legacy

The footprint of TransCanada’s activities is multi-generational and so is our commitment to maintaining positive relationships for the duration of our activities.

Indigenous Relations’ community investment initiatives respond to a wide range of circumstances that constitute the daily reality of Indigenous communities. This ranges from meeting basic needs, such as heat and potable water, to supporting initiatives to strengthen the institutional capacity of community governance.

Some recent examples:

  • In the U.S., TransCanada has sponsored a variety of community events, cultural preservation activities, sporting events and school programs on the reservations. Play Days are held in several U.S. reservation communities throughout the summer, which include games and activities for children of all ages.
  • In 2015, Energy East sponsored the Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek Back to School Program. TransCanada funding provided youth with backpacks and school supplies in an effort to promote confidence for children returning to school in the fall.
  • In 2015, the Eastern Mainline project contributed to the restoration of the historic Christ Church on the Tyendinaga Reserve in Ontario. Built in 1843, the church is one of only six Royal Chapels outside of the United Kingdom. The Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte use the facility not only as a place of worship but also as a community resource centre.
