Purpose and Progress

Husky’s Community Investment Program seeks to strengthen relationships through support of non-profit health, education and community initiatives.

Last year, the Company supported communities through numerous corporate sponsorships and donations. Where possible, the Company also looked to provide employee volunteer opportunities to strengthen the connection with community partners.

Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness highlights include:

  • A $100,000 contribution to the Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador in support of a clinical simulation unit which aids in the training of medical staff
  • A pledge of $80,000 to the Cold Lake Healthcare Centre in Alberta that enabled the purchase of emergency room bedside monitors, which are crucial to patient care and wellbeing
  • $50,000 to assist construction of the Daffodil Place Healing Garden in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, which provides cancer patients a peaceful, healing garden space to recover from treatments

Supporting Education

Education highlights include:

  • An innovative $1.1 million partnership with Lakeland College in the Lloydminster region of Alberta and Saskatchewan to help address a critical shortage of power engineers in the area. Support was provided directly to students in the form of scholarships and employment, along with a donation to expand the College's Oil and Gas Training Lab
  • To help start the school day off right for kids in Tulita, N.W.T. Husky continued its support of the Chief Albert Wright School breakfast program with a $30,000 contribution
  • Husky’s scholarship program helped more than 200 students pursue post-secondary studies


Community highlights include:

  • Bringing Husky's life-time support of Ducks Unlimited and its community-based conservation programs to $1 million with a $200,000 commitment

  • Support of Calgary Opera's Viva Verdi season, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the opera great with a $75,000 commitment
  • Continued support of the Husky Energy Endangered Species program, in partnership with the Calgary Zoo.

  • Helping bring the Alberta Ballet production of Balletlujah!, based on the life and music of k.d lang, to audiences through a $50,000 pledge
