Community Involvement

We support the sustainability and quality of life in communities where our employees live and work. We look for opportunities to make a tangible difference by collaborating with and supporting community organizations. In support of our inclusive culture, we also recognize the importance of establishing relationships with Indigenous communities and local businesses in our key market areas.

Tervita commits to conducting its business in this spirit, striving to maintain positive relationships that contribute to sustainable economic and social development in the communities where we do business.

  • Indigenous Partnerships - We have several types of business relationships with Indigenous communities — ranging from equity and joint venture partnerships to hiring local Indigenous-owned businesses including contractors and suppliers. As a neighbor and a business partner, we work closely with First Nation communities to identify shared values and mutual opportunities.
  • Community Investment - Our program is designed to support the sustainability and quality of life of communities where we live and work. We look for partnerships that give us the opportunity to make a difference in communities where our people live and work, with tangible outcomes.  
  • Employee Giving - Tervita has a 30-year workplace giving partnership with the United Way of Calgary. The company matches our employees’ United Way donations, and together, we have invested more than $1 million towards building a better and stronger community.
