Community

Because good neighbours make good communities

​At ENMAX, we're proud Albertans and we know that we play a vital role in Alberta's communities by providing the electricity that's essential to our way of life.

We're also community members, volunteers and supporters of community initiatives and non-profit organizations. ENMAX invests in community initiatives and engages with the community members through stakeholder relations associated with our construction, maintenance and operations activities. We always strive to be a good neighbour and do the right thing, with a respectful, honest and open approach.

Making a difference

In 2016, ENMAX invested $3.4 million in community partnerships. This included a record United Way campaign which saw 60 per cent of our employees participate – a real example of the power of teamwork. We also made a multi-year commitment to our partner organizations – the Distress Centre, Aspen Family and Community Network Society and the Bissell Centre – who help Albertans with electricity and other basic needs. We believe that the best way we can help is to support organizations who have the expertise to truly make a difference in the lives of Albertans.

Learn more about how we’re helping Albertans meet their energy needs through our partner agencies.



The Power of Knowledge

ENMAX partners with Inside Education to provide electricity literacy opportunities to over 5,000 students across the province since 2014. In 2016, these opportunities included:

  • Energy conferences in Edmonton and Calgary for junior high and high school students with presentations and field trips related to electricity generation, use, efficiency and conservation
  • Professional development sessions for teachers on Careers in Energy Technologies
  • Electricity in School Program which provides predominantly Grade 5 and Grade 9 students with sessions on electricity fundamentals and safety, along with posters and a teacher resource guide.



Energy efficiency seminars

As part of our Powering Partners program, ENMAX works with social agencies including Aspen Family Network, the Distress Centre (both in Calgary) and the Bissell Centre (in Edmonton), to conduct energy efficiency seminars for outreach staff and clients. 

These interactive workshops give participants a better understanding of their utility bills and how to lower electricity consumption and increase comfort in their homes using readily-available energy efficient supplies. Each attendee is given a starter kit of supplies or a gift card to purchase the materials that make the most sense for their home.



All customers are free to purchase natural gas services from the default supply provider or from a retailer of their choice and to purchase electricity services from the regulated rate provider or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of natural gas and electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase natural gas services or electricity services from, you will continue receiving natural gas and electricity from the distribution company in your service area.
