Gazifère plays an active role in improving the quality of life for the local community. Through its investment program, as a corporate citizen, Gazifère supports organizations that share its values and work with the customers it serves.
Gazifère’s Three Core Areas of Community Investment
We encourage organizations and initiatives that focus on community safety.
Safe Community First Responder Grant Program
Safety Planning & Education
We target organizations, programs or projects that offer citizens the opportunity to be inspired by cultural experiences and thus provide the opportunity to learn and grow.
Empowering Individuals to Achieve their Full Potential
Building Potential in Youth
Honoring Indigenous People & Culture
Celebrating Culture & Community
The environment is at the heart of our concerns with this area, which supports the management and conservation of the environment.
Environmental Education & Stewardship
Habitat Remediation & Conservation
Gazifère’s community investments are guided by a core set of criteria. We consider donation and sponsorship opportunities in communities where Gazifère operates that are:
- Primarily within a 20-kilometre (10-mile) radius of our pipeline right-of-way or near our operations
- Of prime importance to the community
- Beneficial to the greatest possible number of people
- Significant to the long-term interests of the community
- Supportive of one of our three core areas that we view as integral for a sustainable community
Examples of qualified organizations
- Community-based emergency services and organizations focused on safety planning and education
- Organizations focused on education, mentorship, and building potential in youth

Organizations receiving funding will be asked to provide a final report detailing the results and benefits achieved through the funded project, program, or campaign.
Meeting Gazifère’s core set of community investment criteria does not guarantee funding. In spite of our significant investment in communities, we are unable to support all worthy, well-qualified organizations.
