By working with communities and understanding their concerns, we are able to identify how and where we can bring sustainable benefits, build local capacity and foster healthy communities.

At Shell Canada we believe Indigenous communities are important partners; our projects must be designed and implemented to minimize impacts, provide shared value and enhance relationships with Indigenous Peoples. Click here to find out more about our commitment to Indigenous Peoples in Canada, including Community Engagement, Business Development, Community Investment and Employment.

Social Investment is our voluntary contribution to communities in Canada. It is embedded in the way we carry out our day-to-day business to provide benefits to the communities in which we operate. We seek to initiate, establish and support programs that are aligned with our business and create sustainable value to people and the environment. Our focus areas are: Education, Community Development, Community Skills & Enterprise Development, Health, Safety, Environment and Energy Access.
