Company's Centennial Community Grant Program Launches Today
CHATHAM, ON, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - Union Gas is celebrating 100 years of
delivering safe, reliable and affordable service to customers and
communities across Ontario. To mark its Centennial, the company is
awarding 100 one-time grants of $1,000 each to support charitable
projects focused on the environment, community safety, and education
across the province.
"A passionate commitment to stewardship, safety and high performance is
central to our business culture and operations," said Julie Dill,
President of Union Gas. "Our success as one of North America's premier
natural gas storage, transmission and distribution companies is shared
with the communities we serve and we couldn't think of a better way to
mark this occasion than by giving back to community programs that align
with these business values."
Union Gas, a Spectra Energy Company, was founded in 1911 through the
amalgamation of three southern Ontario local gas distribution
companies. Over the past 100 years, Union Gas has been privileged to
work in over 400 Ontario communities, delivering not only natural gas
to homes and businesses, but also economic growth to Ontario, jobs,
investment, efficiency programs, volunteer involvement and charitable
giving. Today, Union Gas, one of Canada's Top 100 employers, is the
second largest Natural Gas utility in Canada serving 1.3 million
customers in 400 communities across Ontario.
Leading up to the company's 100th anniversary on Dec. 19, an exciting
year-long centennial celebration is planned that brings together
employees, retirees and communities across Ontario.
