Investing in making Alberta better goes beyond infrastructure like wires and power plants. It’s about what connects us and our communities.
Whether it’s giving minor hockey players an assist to their goals, helping educators inspire their students or lending a helping hand to those who need it, it’s a privilege to know we can help make a difference. Last year our company and our employees contributed $3.6 million in support of programs, groups and initiatives – so that the connections we make can provide another form of positive energy across Alberta.
We know electricity plays a vital role in our lives, and we want everyone to have a safe and bright place to come home to.
For some Albertans, the simple act of turning on the light isn’t so simple.
Together with our community partners, Habitat for Humanity Edmonton and the Calgary Homeless Foundation, we’re helping brighten the lives of vulnerable Albertans.
In 2014, we launched our Lighting up Alberta campaign to raise funds and awareness for these organizations.
In addition to the campaign, we donated $45,000 to the Calgary Homeless Foundation to light up 22 of their buildings with energy efficient lighting, and $50,000 to Habitat for Humanity Edmonton to install energy efficient lighting, programmable thermostats and other energy management tools at their Neufeld Landing Development in Edmonton.
We’re also working with the Aspen Family and Community Network Society to identify ways to help vulnerable Albertans manage their long-term energy needs.

For more than 100 years Stampede Park has been a gathering place for people from across the world.
Through a 10-year legacy investment,
ENMAX Park at the Calgary Stampede will be an open-air museum and classroom where people can learn about environmental stewardship, Calgary’s trailblazing spirit, First Nations of Treaty 7 and the city’s history.
Experience is a great teacher, and we believe there’s no better way to learn than by experiencing something first hand.
So, we partnered with Inside Education to help
educate and inspire Alberta students about electricity.
4640 Alberta students were engaged through Inside Education’s electricity curriculum in 2014.
Our support assists Inside Education to provide teachers with electricity literacy and safety curriculum tools and resources that allow them to elevate their classrooms beyond traditional learning goals.
