In 2023, Trans Mountain proudly supported 125 organizations and local community initiatives, contributing more than $290,000 in financial assistance and in-kind donations. Through the Community Investment Program, we fund valuable legacy projects aligned with our three pillars: Environmental Stewardship, Community Well-Being and Education in communities across the pipeline corridor. Upholding our commitment to being a good neighbour, Trans Mountain values giving back to the communities where we operate.

In November 2023, Trans Mountain’s annual United Way Campaign exceeded its campaign goal, raising more than $130,000 for those in need. Our entire workforce hosted a variety of engaging events to raise money, including an online auction, raffles and even a pie throwing event. With every pledged dollar employees donated, Trans Mountain matched contributions by 50 cents, resulting in more than $22,000 in matching funds.

Outlined below are several causes we supported in 2023:

Teen Challenge

Trans Mountain has donated a $5,000 grant to Teen Challenge, supporting its residential facility in Chilliwack, British Columbia. This contribution aids the facility’s mission to assist individuals over the age of 18 in overcoming addiction by fostering character development, health and leadership skills. During construction of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, individuals benefiting from Teen Challenge’s services kindly delivered hot meals to our construction crews working on-site.

Canada Sports Hall of Fame – Indigenous Sports Heroes Experience

Canada Sports Hall of Fame – Indigenous Sports Heroes Experience is a national education initiative designed to empower vulnerable youth through access to services and resources that encourage Indigenous sports education and mentorship. The program assists youth facing challenges, including mental health and suicide. To show its support, Trans Mountain contributed a $2,500 grant earmarked for technological advancements and efforts to expand the program’s outreach to students across Canada.

Royal Inland Hospital Foundation

In 2023, the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation received a $1,000 donation from Trans Mountain’s Safety Committee, presented by our Kamloops team. The foundation is dedicated to raising funds to support the medical equipment and care needs at Royal Inland Hospital. The facility is the only tertiary referral hospital in the Cariboo Shuswap health service area, serving more than 225,000 British Columbians.

Hinton Adult Learning Society

The Hinton Adult Learning Society’s educational program assists vulnerable adults in Hinton, Alberta and surrounding areas. Through its many resources and services, the society offers courses for adult learning, employment, homelessness, family support, language and learning, and general skills. Trans Mountain gifted the society a $1,500 grant in support of its ongoing community work.

British Columbia Conservation Foundation – Northern Spotted Owl Breeding Program

The Northern Spotted Owl, one of Canada’s most endangered species, is found exclusively in southwestern British Columbia. The Northern Spotted Owl Breeding Program, managed by the British Columbia Conservation Foundation, stands as the world's sole initiative dedicated to breeding spotted owls. The program serves as a temporary caretaker for the owls, nurturing them until they can thrive independently and reintegrate into their ancestral forests. Trans Mountain has proudly contributed a grant to support the ongoing conservation of this important species.
