Shell people and their families are the driving force behind our long-standing relationship with United Way, in which employees, retirees and their families give generously of their time, talents, and money. Across Canada we match the dollars raised by employees and retirees.

In 2015, Shell contributed more than $5.5 million to 12 United Way chapters across Canada.

United Way creates lasting change across Canada by building pillars for communities to stand on. With the support of partners like Shell, United Way engages and mobilizes communities to provide Canadians with food, shelter and jobs, to improve access to social and health-related services, and to help kid’s access education and development programs.

Days of Caring

The United Way Days of Caring™ is the volunteer efforts undertaken by employees who give a helping hand to a variety of community agencies. Since 1996, Shell has encouraged employee participation in the United Way Day of Caring™ program by providing paid time off to employees who volunteer.
