Our employees are giving back to communities

November 2016 – We support our employees’ charitable giving through our Thanks & Giving campaign. Each fall, employees can donate to the registered charities that are meaningful to them and we match their donations, dollar for dollar.

In addition to supporting hundreds of charitable organizations through their financial contributions, staff also gave their time through a variety of volunteer events, such as a sandwich making blitz for Calgary’s Drop-In & Rehab Centre, and donated food items as part of a company-wide food drive that took place in support of local food banks.

We know our communities, and the charities that serve those communities, need our support now more than ever. Giving staff the opportunity to make a difference for the causes that are important to them is one of the ways we strengthen the communities where we live and work.

Cenovus employees volunteered to make sandwiches for the Calgary Drop-In and Rehab Centre as part of the 2016 annual Thanks & Giving campaign.
