Our community investment program focuses on making our communities stronger and safer as well as more innovative, inclusive and diverse.
Supporting stronger, safer communities
The COVID-19 crisis has presented extraordinary challenges for all of us, but especially for those most vulnerable in our communities. Through our COVID-19 Community Response Program, we’ve joined together with our operating companies and employees to donate more than $6 million to organizations providing critical aid and supporting basic needs like food and shelter.
As advocates for innovation, we’re proud supporters of the Emera ideaHUB at Dalhousie University and the Emera Innovation Exchange at Memorial University. These collaboration spaces are encouraging entrepreneurship, fresh thinking and new ideas as well as supporting start-up companies here in this region.
Promoting inclusion and diversity
We’re investing a minimum of $5 million over the next five years though Emera's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Fund – a collective effort across Emera and its operating companies to support organizations and initiatives advancing inclusion and diversity in our communities.
