In 2022, Trans Mountain demonstrated the importance of giving back to the communities we work in by providing more than $308,000 in financial support and in-kind donations to 118 organizations. The funded initiatives aligned with the three pillars of Trans Mountain’s Community Investment Program: Environmental Stewardship, Community Well-Being and Education.

In November 2022, our annual Trans Mountain United Way campaign raised $105,281. Our staff made pledges, purchased online 50/50 tickets and participated in an online auction. They even organized a pie throwing event and a pizza fundraiser lunch. For every dollar donated by our employees, Trans Mountain matched those contributions by 50 cents.

We’re thankful to the many volunteer-led organizations working to make a difference in our communities. Below are several of the causes we supported in 2022:

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice

Trans Mountain provided a donation to the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice Society, the only pediatric palliative care provider in British Columbia and the Yukon. The program provides support to children and their families from the time of diagnosis through illness, and beyond the loss of their loved ones. With support for children in the program extending on average for seven years, the Canuck Place program provides support to the families through their bereavement program for an additional three years.

BC Wildlife Park

Trans Mountain provided a $5,000 grant to the BC Wildlife Park in Kamloops, British Columbia. The funds granted directly supported the organization’s efforts in bird rehabilitation. The BC Wildlife Park cares for more than 400 animals annually at its facility; the animals have either been rescued or orphaned and are unable to survive on their own in the wild.

Valemount Meals on Wheels Program

Trans Mountain supported the Valemount Senior Citizens Housing Society through a grant towards the Meals on Wheels program. The program delivers home-cooked meals three days a week for anyone in the community who may need help getting a meal on the table. This low-cost program promotes healthy and nutritious options for residents who cannot cook on their own.

Moose Hide Foundation

The Moose Hide Campaign is an impactful initiative aimed at raising awareness and advocating for the safety and well-being of Indigenous women and girls. This grassroots movement encourages men and boys to wear a small moose hide patch as a visible symbol of their commitment to ending violence against Indigenous women and girls. In recognizing the importance of this cause, Trans Mountain has extended support by providing a grant of $5,000 to the Moose Hide Campaign.

Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation

In 2022, the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation received a $1,000 donation from Trans Mountain’s Safety Committee at Edmonton Terminal. Stollery is a top specialized children’s hospital in Canada that deals with many complex cases in Alberta. Stollery is dedicated to advancing care for children’s mental and physical health and strongly advocates for children’s health care to become a greater priority.
