As we plan, construct and operate the Energy East Pipeline, TransCanada is committed to working with local communities along the project corridor. We believe in making a positive difference where we live and work. We will always be looking for ways to help build stronger communities through job creation and training, as well as by investing in communities, the environment and safety. Giving back has been both a part of our everyday culture and our core belief for more than 60 years.
In 2013, we invested over $12 million into nearly 1,600 non-profit organizations across North America to support initiatives in three focus areas: safety, communities and environment.
Contributing to Canada’s Towns and Cities
Here are some recent initiatives that we have undertaken to demonstrate our commitment to being a good neighbour, an employer of choice and a trusted community partner:
- Palais Montcalm – TransCanada made a $30,000 donation to Québec City’s most venerable concert hall to help them purchase a new concert pipe organ.
- Trans Canada Trail – TransCanada is proud to support the Trans Canada Trail. When completed in 2017, the 23,000-kilometre trail will be the longest connected recreational infrastructure in the world, linking 34 million Canadians and 1,000 communities.
- Helmets to Hardhats Canada (H2H) – Through our sponsorship of this non-profit organization, TransCanada is helping veterans make the transition from active duty to meaningful careers as skilled members of the construction industry. Vsit HelmetsToHardhats.ca to learn more.
