United Way of Northern BC (UWNBC) is thrilled to announce the results of this year’s Coastal GasLink Legacy of Giving campaign! Through the generosity of Coastal GasLink and their community-minded prime contractors – Surerus Murphy Joint Venture, AECON, SA Energy, Nadleh-Macro, Michels, O.J. Pipelines, Macro Spiecapag Joint Venture, and Ledcor-Haisla, a total of more than $123,800 has been raised for the United Way of Northern BC to support critical social service programming.
The partnership with Coastal GasLink supports the United Way of Northern BC’s mission to connect resources with local needs throughout Northern British Columbia. The Coastal GasLink Legacy Fund aims to remove barriers by providing funding to recipients to address socio-economic issues facing their local community. Last year’s funding from this campaign supported 10 non-profit organizations, substantially improving the lives of thousands of individuals living in the region.
“At UWNBC, we value our relationships above all-else, and we are so grateful for the one we have built with Coastal GasLink. By working together, we have been able to put over $220,000 back into communities across Northern BC in just two years. Through the incredible generosity of Coastal GasLink and their prime contractors, we continue to bring resources into the region that otherwise would not be there,” says Trista Spencer, Executive Director, United Way of Northern BC.
“We are so excited to be able to support even more programming and services with this year’s contributions, which saw a 26 percent increase since just last year. This is great news for our Northern BC communities!”
By working together toward common goals in local communities through this exciting initiative, UWNBC is able to create positive social change within 16 communities along the Coastal GasLink project route.
“Coastal GasLink is about building more than a pipeline. When we speak to our workforce, stakeholders and local and Indigenous communities about how we are leaving a lasting legacy in their communities, this is part of how we accomplish that. Coastal GasLink is proud of our partnership with the United Way of Northern BC, and seeing the funds raised go directly back into the communities where we work is something special,” said Sonya Kirby, Vice-President, Project Delivery for Coastal GasLink. “We’re grateful for the dedication of our prime contractors and workforce who rallied together to support this important initiative.”
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who contributed to making this campaign such a success!
