Funding guidelines

Donations and sponsorships may be provided to community organizations that support our business and operational objectives:

  • endeavours that benefit the community and our customers, employees, and stakeholders by improving the quality of life;
  • encourage and support the community-minded efforts and involvement of our employees;
  • provide a strategic opportunity to support key business objectives or deliver a corporate message to key audiences.

Preference will be given to initiatives that are provincial or regional in scope. Submissions for donation and sponsorship support must be received a minimum of 75 days prior to the event. Review times vary depending on the size, scope, and nature of the request. You can help reduce the review timeline by providing complete and accurate documentation. Due to current financial restraints, our funding is limited.
