Community Investment

Community Investment

Building lasting relationships
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. In 2020, Pembina invested $5.3 million in our operating communities and our employees volunteered almost 1,800 hours while following strict public health protocols. This funding was used to improve access to healthcare; fund Indigenous 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.
