What is the Shell Foothills Legacy Fund?

Since beginning our Foothills business nearly 70 years ago, we’ve strived to leave a positive, lasting legacy in the communities where we operate.

Following the June 26, 2019 announcement that Shell has reached an agreement with Pieridae Energy Limited to purchase Shell’s Foothills Assets - Waterton, Jumping Pound and Caroline and the gas fields which feed them, and the Shantz Sulphur Forming Facility - we wish to announce the establishment of a $2 million legacy fund to honour the many decades of Shell’s proud involvement in the community.

The Fund has been created for the communities near these assets – places where we’ve been proud to live and work – to thank you for the support and trust you placed in our operations, and to help valued community partners with access to funding to continue delivering important services in local communities in the greater Foothills region through 2020 and 2021.

COVID-19: How we are Responding across Shell Canada

As COVID-19 continues to impact communities across Canada, we want to take a moment to share some of the actions our company is taking to help “flatten the curve” to reduce the rate of infection, focusing on the health and safety of our people, communities and the organizations who partner with our businesses.

We took proactive measures very early on based on the experience of our colleagues in Asia, such as heightened awareness, hygiene and cleaning, and to stop international travel. We have taken other actions including:

  1. Employees in non-business critical roles are required to work from home. If a role is considered critical and cannot be performed offsite, we have protocols in place to prevent exposure. For example, we are applying guidelines on social distancing and increased cleaning measures, including at our Retail sites which provide essentials to the community like fuel and food.
  2. We are pausing our Fuelling Kindness in-community volunteer programs and events to ensure the safety of employees and the communities. We are actively engaged with our employees and with other companies on how we can support the immediate needs of communities during this challenging time.
  3. Other social investments and community grants work will continue virtually, and we remain committed to supporting organizations in communities near our operations.

We appreciate that this is an upsetting and concerning time for everyone. We want to reassure you that we are taking this seriously.We have business continuity plans in place to meet the needs of our employees, customers and partners across Canada.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow advice from public health authorities to help ensure the ongoing well-being of our employees, customers and local communities.
