Dow Fort Saskatchewan’s community investment initiatives provide an opportunity for us to positively impact the region where we live and operate. Our contributions range from grant and sponsorship programs to employee volunteerism.
In recent years, the Fort Saskatchewan site has awarded grants to a variety of non-profit organizations for materials and resources to run programming that enhances the local quality of life. We have also funded larger projects that focus on the themes of sustainability, contributing to community success, science in society and innovation.
One of our most notable community investments is the Dow Centennial Centre, which is a multi-use facility for sports, recreation and events located in the city of Fort Saskatchewan. Others include contributions to the Elk Island Public and Elk Island Catholic Schools’ Partners for Science program, area Habitat for Humanity builds, annual Shoreline Clean-ups and Canada Day celebrations, among others.
