Emera Newfoundland & Labrador (ENL) takes pride in supporting the places in which we live and work. As part of this, our Community Investment Program primarily focuses on supporting initiatives and activities in western Newfoundland and Cape Breton.
Each month, ENL receives many requests for funding; as a result, the company has formed a Community Investment Committee, which is guided by the following focus areas:
- Strengthening community spirit - Emera Newfoundland & Labrador supports the collaborative efforts of community members. By partnering with organizations that unite and engage citizens, our goal is to help create positive synergies where we live and work.
- Fostering environmental awareness and sustainability - Emera Newfoundland & Labrador shares the desire with its stakeholders to enjoy the benefits of a healthy and sustainable environment. We work with organizations to conserve important habitats, protect species at risk and educate people about the importance of the environment.
- Promoting health and wellness - The ENL Community Investment Program supports athletic and wellness initiatives that work to promote healthy living within the communities in which we live and work.
- Enhancing youth activities and education - Emera Newfoundland & Labrador places a special emphasis on supporting organizations that help young people through educational programs, sports and recreation and other character building activities.
