As a responsible energy producer, we are committed to giving back to the communities where our people live and work.
Vermilion's community investment program – our Vermilion Ways of Caring – fulfills this mission by supporting non-profit and charitable organizations in three ways:
Our community partners make important contributions to the social, environmental and cultural fabric of our communities. We are proud to support their work by investing resources (cash, in-kind and employee time) to make a difference in four key areas:
We support the volunteer activities of our people and their families through our volunteer grant program. It's our way of recognizing the time and energy they give to the community on their personal time and it helps to create a culture of caring at Vermilion.
The opportunity to receive the volunteer grant means that Vermilion cares about what is important to me and my family. For the organization that I support, it means the hockey year is more affordable for families and the organization has the means to run a great program for the community.

I volunteered with the concert organizing committee for the five year anniversary of my pop choir “Popkoor Yes!” The volunteer grant from Vermilion, in addition to contributions from other sponsors, made it possible to have an adequate budget and reasonably priced tickets to the event. It is great that Vermilion supports these initiatives and activities. My fellow organizers and the choir’s board were pleasantly surprised that an employer gives such support to its employees!

We organize "hands-on" opportunities for staff and their families to engage in company-sponsored volunteer activities during business hours. In addition to our corporate and business unit days of caring, a number of smaller groups organized their own team day of caring.
The contribution Vermilion volunteers have made to the general beautification of the Wood’s Homes properties has had a tremendous impact on the youth we serve. It instills the value of taking care of one’s surroundings and helps the kid’s feel cared for adding to their sense of comfort, stability and confidence.
