Purpose and Progress
Husky’s Community Investment Program strengthens relationships through support for non-profit health, education and community initiatives.
The Company’s $1 million donation in the wake of damaging floods in southern Alberta immediately assisted with flood response and relief efforts, and later helped communities with recovery and rebuilding initiatives. Employees were encouraged to assist where they could.
As part of Husky’s 75th anniversary in 2013, the Company made donations to a number of organizations which do outstanding work in their communities.
Health and Wellness
- A $500,000 contribution to the Kahkiyow Keykanow Elders Care Home in Fort Chipewyan, so that elders can continue to live in their community.
- A $75,000 donation to the Lloydminster Regional Health Foundation for Lifeline pediatric and neonatal crash cart upgrades.
- A $50,000 pledge to the Children’s Music Therapy Program at Hull Services, using music to reach abused and neglected children.
- A $1.125 million partnership with the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) in Saskatoon to help address a critical shortage of power engineers in the area. Support was provided directly to students via scholarships and employment, along with a donation to improve the Institute’s Power Engineering Technology Lab, building on a similar donation at Lakeland College in Lloydminster.
