Communities throughout our operations put their trust in Pembina and permit us to operate in their backyards.
Through our Community Investment Program, we honour this relationship and give back to the communities where we live, work and play.
Giving back to the community is one of Pembina’s fundamental values. So far in 2020, Pembina has invested $3.5 million in our operating communities. This funding is being used to improve access to healthcare; fund Aboriginal and other vulnerable communities; and support emergency response in rural areas. We believe these funds provide a boost to core services as they weather the increased demand for their support.
At this time, we are not accepting new Community Investment applications. Please check back for future updates.
