We exist to help fuel people’s quality of life, by building trust, empowering employees and delivering societal value through collaborations and contributions in communities where we live and work.
We place a high priority on the role we can play in contributing to the safety, vitality and sustainability of our communities. It’s important to Enbridge and our employees that we help our communities to be resilient—to become more stable and stronger in the face of the unique physical, social, and economic challenges before them.
Our goal is to not just give, but to enable. We do this by partnering with organizations that champion solutions for safety, environmental and social issues.
We focus on collaboration with communities, Indigenous groups and partners to identify and develop opportunities to build community partnerships and support networks, and foster constructive relationships.
We’re also keenly focused on engaging and empowering employees to volunteer and contribute to our communities. Enbridge employees have a strong sense of connection to their communities and a long history of involvement. Their energy and efforts are recognized by the company through dollars for hours volunteered, matching grants and support for fundraising.
