After eight year old Dawson Kormilo was killed riding his bike along a busy road that had no sidewalk, TransCanada wanted to ensure that there was a safer path for their community. For this reason, in 2009, TransCanada made a significant donation to assist with development of Dawson’s Path, a sidewalk for the town of Jaffray, British Columbia, to help keep children safe. We are proud to be recognized as a good neighbour in the community.
TransCanada has been an avid supporter of Ducks Unlimited Canada for over a decade. We have supported the Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretative Centre, educational laboratories and the Watershed Legacy program. Through our renewed five year partnership, critical wetland habitat will be protected and restored, specifically conserving the Missouri Coteau in Saskatchewan, and the Gulf Coastal Marshes through the Grand Bayou Hydrology Restoration project in Louisiana. We are one of the first corporations to support Ducks Unlimited’s joint wetland conservation efforts at both ends of a flyway.
In 2011, TransCanada initiated a three-year, $300,000 partnership with Engineers Without Borders Canada (EWB). The partnership is the first of its kind for both TransCanada and EWB and centres on an agreement to second – or temporarily transfer – six employees to EWB projects in Africa, for six months each. This innovative partnership has created excitement across the corporate sector. Other companies are following TransCanada’s approach to simultaneously invest in the personal and professional development of their employees while also supporting EWB.
TransCanada is excited to sponsor the 2012 G(irls)20 Summit in Mexico City May 28–31. The G(irls)20 Summit is a Canadian non-profit organization that brings together girls from the G20 countries to debate, discuss and design innovative ideas necessary to empower girls and women globally. We all benefit when girls have every opportunity to integrate fully and to enjoy the benefits of participation in the education, social, economic and democratic life of where they live. To that end, participants are required to put their experience into action within their local communities when they return home.
TransCanada contributed toward various community initiatives in the Guadalajara area including equipment, agriculture, community services, civic organizations, computer equipment and building infrastructure.

In 2009, TransCanada partnered with Impact Society to grow the HEROES program across Canada. HEROES is an educational program designed to create the confidence, character and integrity needed to break down walls, recognize gifts and abilities, and experience purpose and success. This investment will train 1,250 new Teach-Instructors on how to deliver the program in-school, with a potential reach of 312,500 teens. As we have witnessed first hand the positive results that the HEROES program has produced, we continue to partner with the Impact Society to support the momentum gained across Canada as they continue to build a lasting legacy that reflects the positive differences that they continue to make in our community.
Each year, TransCanada employees volunteer their time in support of Junior Achievement and its members.

Through this partnership, TransCanada will support and grow several initiatives including updating CASE curriculum, the Washington Leadership Conference, Agricultural Services Proficiency Program, Career Expo/Convention, Parliamentary Procedure Program and the Agricultural Career Network.
TransCanada supported Nature Canada for the past 6 years. Through our partnership, we have supported several initiatives including the Priority Important Bird Areas and Community programs.

In 2008, Stephen’s Backpacks for Children in Need Society was incorporated. It was inspired by Stephen McPhee of Airdrie, a six year old child dealing with autism, who asked his parents to help him make 15 backpacks to give to homeless children staying in a Calgary shelter. Shortly thereafter, TransCanada began supporting this organization by donating $5000 every year, which contributed towards providing over 3,500 pairs of new running shoes and 5,000 backpacks to several communities in central and southern Alberta including the Piikani and Siksika First Nation communities.
In 2010, TransCanada committed to a three year partnership toward developing the TransCanada Alberta Backstage Series.

In 2009, TransCanada collaborated with EPCOR Centre of Performing Arts to support TransCanada’s Alberta Music Series which engages the community, reaches new audiences and raises EPCOR CENTRE’s profile as being a supporter of and advocate for local artists.
