Communities

OUR COMMUNITIES

One of our core beliefs is to support and develop the communities in which we work. Our active involvement with local sports teams, not-for-profit groups, educational institutions and Aboriginal groups allows us to make a real and impactful difference.

We believe that our young people are the future. Whether we are sponsoring hockey teams, supporting educational programs, or organizing community events, our focus is to provide youth with opportunities to grow and develop the skills they need to not only succeed, but excel at what they do.

Bouchier supports many organizations and groups within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB), with preference to our home community of Fort McKay.

We support our cultural values through investments that:

  • Develop strong communities
  • Advance educational organizations
  • Provide life skills opportunities to youth
  • Support the employee assistance services

Investments may be provided in the form of in-kind donations, sponsorship, or employee volunteer services.

Bouchier is a proud supporter of:

  • The Fort McKay Community
  • The Fort Chipewyan Community
  • Keyano College
  • Northern Lights Health Foundation
  • Hockey
  • Wood’s Homes
  • Wood Buffalo Food Bank Association
  • Wood Buffalo Regional Library

Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta provides gender specific programming for girls within the RMWB. We have been providing programming for girls in the region since 1979, (First as a Big Sisters Society and for the last 7 years as Girls Incorporated).

While the United Way is one of our funders, we do a great deal of fundraising, as do most not for profits. Girls Inc. does not charge for programming, as we do not want finances to be a barrier for participation. Our Mandate is To Inspire ALL Girls To Be Strong, Smart and Bold. We are very fortunate to have a generous business, corporate support for our programming to allow us to continue to offer quality programming at no charge.

Bouchier has always been more than a source for funds, as a company they support our mandate and take a very personal interest in the work we do with young girls. Whether it is support for our annual golf tournament, or our Woman of inspiration or any one of our programs, we have always been able to count on their generousity, be it through a donation or through participation. We use the success of Bouchier and the roles that strong, smart and bold women have as examples for the girls we work with on what they can accomplish in their lives. We showcase the amazing inspirational women in the region, and through the support from Bouchier, we work to help grow the next generation of inspirational women.

EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

Bouchier exceeds community involvement by going above and beyond simply offering employment opportunities within our communities.

We encourage and assist employees in volunteering and contributing to charities of their choice, which meet our community investment guidelines.
