ATCO in Your Community – March & April Update

We are committed to creating healthy, vibrant communities. We do this by developing meaningful partnerships and providing time, expertise and financial support to the organizations that help communities thrive.

In March and April, we took part in several community initiatives, including The City of Calgary’s Safety Expo, Rogers Hometown Hockey in Lloydminster, the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties Tradeshow, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wood Buffalo’s Curl for Kids Sake, the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, the Southern Alberta Safety Society’s Bike Rodeos and Alberta Emerald Days in Drumheller.

The City of Calgary – Safety Expo

On March 8 and 9, we were invited to take part in Calgary’s annual Safety Expo at City Hall. Each year, thousands of Grade 5 & 6 students gather to learn about safety hazards. Our team set up an interactive display to teach students about gas pipeline safety in their communities. We also talked about the dangers of carbon monoxide and the importance of detectors in their homes. Thanks to our many volunteers who helped make this event a success.

Rogers Hometown Hockey – Lloydminster

Now in its third year, Canada’s largest hockey festival connects fans with their passion for the game through family-friendly events across the country. Through our ATCO Equipment Loaner Program, we provided barbecues and canopies free-of-charge in Lloydminster, helping event organizers lower their overhead costs. Our team was also onsite to grill hamburgers in support of the Lloydminster Minor Hockey team.


Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties Tradeshow

We were excited to once again attend the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties Tradeshow in Edmonton. The event brings Alberta’s 69 counties and municipal districts together to build strong and resilient rural communities. Our people networked with delegates from around Alberta and shared some of our innovative business solutions. We also hosted the morning coffee break for those attending the conference.


Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wood Buffalo – Curl for Kids Sake

On March 25, we took part in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wood Buffalo’s sixth annual Curl for Kids Sake event. The event raised more than $22,000, with all proceeds going towards local programming in and around the Fort McMurray area. This funding enables the organization to continue providing quality mentorship, and brings them closer to ensuring every child receives a mentor. Our mascots, Digger and Louie, also joined some local friends to support this great cause.


Royal Manitoba Winter Fair

For more than 40 years, we’ve been a proud supporter of the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. The fair celebrates the rich history of Manitoba and features a variety of events from world-class show jumping to hands-on agricultural awareness programs. One of the highlights of the event is the ATCO Cup show jumping competition, which took place on March 30. The competition serves as an opportunity to entertain current clients and potential customers.


Alberta Emerald Days – Drumheller

On April 28, we participated in our first Emerald Day in Drumheller. The Alberta Emerald Foundation strives to inspire youth to take positive environmental action. Our very own Sylvia Adams, Customer Services Supervisor for Electric Distribution, talked to more than 230 students about sustainability and renewable energy. A special thanks to everyone who helped coordinate the Speaker Series event.


Southern Alberta Safety Society – Bike Rodeos

We’re once again sponsoring the Southwest Alberta Road Safety Society’s annual Bike Rodeo Tour. The rodeo travels around southwest Alberta from April to June, teaching students about road safety rules and the importance of wearing a helmet. With our sponsorship, new helmets are distributed to students who either do not have helmets or the helmets they have are unsafe to use.
