UNION GAS CELEBRATES CENTENNIAL WITH $100,000 GIFT TO CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS ACROSS ONTARIO

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.
