As a joint venture owner of Syncrude, we fund our 36.74% share of Syncrude’s community investment program that is focused on the Fort McMurray/Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo area, where its operations are located.
COS also has our own community investment program that is focused on Calgary and surrounding areas. We believe that strong companies such as COS can, and should, affect significant positive changes in the quality of life in our community. Whether it’s doing our part to address the root problems of poverty, helping youth to attain their greatest potential, or supporting emergency shelters, we focus on projects and organizations where we believe COS’ investments can make a meaningful difference.
We make strategic investments in three focus areas: Community, Education and Health. Since 2005, COS has funded about $13 million towards community investment programs in Alberta.
Maximizing employee contributions
While our 30 employees are small in numbers, they are big in personal investment and volunteering in our community.
COS matches donations made by its employees to charities and community organizations, including the United Way, that align with our established community investment program criteria.
Our employees also participate in "Days of Caring". A Day of Caring is an event, organized by COS, that allows employees time off to volunteer together at a local philanthropic organization. These events encourage direct community involvement as well as provide unique team-building opportunities.
