Employee Support and Volunteerism
The spirit of employee
philanthropy and volunteerism is strong at Union Gas. We support our
employees and retirees as they give back to their communities through
employee directed giving to eligible charitable organizations, by
supporting their sweat-equity of volunteerism and by matching their
contributions to our United Way campaign. Employee programs include:
We value our employees' active participation in their local communities
and recognize that their time and talents enhance the communities where
they live and work. Volunteer projects are encouraged throughout the
year, as well as during the Union Gas annual three month-long volunteer
Helping Hands in Action.
Union Gas encourages civic volunteerism by providing funding for "sweat
equity" volunteer projects performed by employees and retirees. We are
also proud to make volunteer grants to eligible, charitable,
organizations on behalf of employee volunteer who serves on an
organization's board or leadership committee.
We are proud to provide a dollar-for-dollar corporate match for our
employees' contributions to our annual United Way campaign. This match
serves as Union Gas’ support of health and human service organizations
in our communities and recognizes the generosity of our employees to the
Matching Gifts Program
We are also pleased to support the generosity and community involvement
of employees and retirees by offering the Matching Gifts Program, which
provides matching funds to the qualified charitable organizations
employees and retirees personally support.
Spectra Energy Scholars Program
The Spectra Energy (parent company of Union Gas) Scholars Program
provides college scholarships for qualifying high school senior
dependents of our employees and retirees. We value education at all
levels and believe it makes good business sense to support the
educational endeavours of our own children.
Union Gas enthusiastically supports our communities and
employees with stewardship, volunteerism and charitable
contributions that are strategic and provide the greatest benefit to
the communities where we work and live.
At Union Gas, we strategically support charitable
organizations that fall within our focus areas.
At Union Gas, we are committed to helping improve the quality
of life in the more than 400 communities we serve. Sponsorships are
one way Union Gas can support your community.
Each year, Union Gas partners with over 250 organizations
across the province of Ontario through our corporate and employee
