CALGARY, AB, May 31, 2023 /CNW/ - ATCO Ltd. (TSX: ACO.X) (TSX: ACO.Y) – Today, ATCO announced additional support to those affected by the devastating wildfires that have been impacting communities the company serves in western Canada. ATCO is making a $100,000 corporate donation to the Canadian Red Cross 2023 Alberta Fire Appeals and the Northwestern Alberta Emergency Recovery Fund. We have also established the ATCO Family Fire Relief Program – a dedicated fund to assist ATCO employees and their families who have been affected by the fires.
"At ATCO, we believe in standing together and supporting our team during times of adversity," said Nancy Southern, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of ATCO. "Through the ATCO Family Fire Relief Program, we aim to provide crucial aid and relief to our colleagues affected by this natural disaster."
Since the start of the fires, ATCO employees have been on the front lines of the response, minimizing energy disruptions to communities and protecting vital energy infrastructure.
The ATCO Family Fire Relief Program will assist ATCO employees and their families who have been affected by the fires due to damage to homes or property. Many of these employees have also been involved in ATCO's response efforts to protect and restore service to the electricity and natural gas system that our communities depend on.
