ATCO Structures & Logistics is comprised of individuals who live, work and are involved in local communities. Supporting community activities is a natural way for us, as a company, to support our employees. When done well, community involvement is also an opportunity to build on and grow relationships where there is a business objective. When employee, business and community needs mirror each other, community sponsorship opportunities have the greatest potential for making a strong impact. As ATCO evaluates these sponsorship opportunities, we look for community-based projects that bring the most value to employees, positively reflect our brand values, showcase our products or services, and support our business objectives.Eligibility:To receive donations or sponsorships, applying organizations must be:

Areas of focus:SafetyIn the work that we do, our number one priority is on employee, contractor and partner safety.

Education As a major employer of Albertans and a growing international workforce, we recognize the value in supporting future talent that we may one day recruit. Opportunities in this category create a well-trained, highly motivated, inclusive workforce particularly in the trades and engineering fields.EnvironmentOur employees live and play in the communities we operate in. Above and beyond that, we are a responsible corporate citizen and part of our responsibility holds an obligation to consider opportunities that protect, maintain and honour local environments.
