Shell Canada’s thoughts are with those impacted by the flooding. Please continue to be safe. Employees are encouraged to contact their supervisors to let them know you are safe and whether you have been directly impacted by flooding in southern Alberta.
Downtown Calgary continues to be under mandatory evacuation order and our offices remain closed until at least Thursday morning, June 27, and until further notice.
We are working on a plan for when employees can return to the office. More details will be available at a later date so please check back here as more details will be posted when available.
