Emera employees and their family members volunteer at the A.F.F. Outdoor  Film Experience in Halifax.

We have a long history of supporting initiatives that make our communities stronger and more vibrant places to live today. We’ve sponsored educational, sports and recreational facilities, and programs that support local not-for-profits.

Matching Funds

Our team members are passionate community members too, volunteering thousands of hours to worthy causes. We offer several matching programs to help make the most of our team members’ charitable contributions. Our Good Neighbour initiative in Canada, Maine and in our other New England operations creates opportunities to match corporate sponsorship to qualifying non-profit organizations where our team members and, in some areas, retirees donate their time.

We also match funds donated by employees for individual or team fundraising initiatives, and we have an arrangement with United Way that enables employees to give to the charities and non-profits of their choice through an annual payroll deduction.

In partnership with the United Way of Halifax, Emera is proud to have the largest workplace campaign in Atlantic Canada today.
