Partnerships that promote health and wellness

Canadian Natural has made a five-year commitment of $250,000 to The APPLE Schools Foundation, a registered charitable organization that provides funding to schools across northern Alberta to create healthy school communities. This partnership with the Alberta Project Promoting active Living and healthy Eating (APPLE) will support the expansion of this program into remote northern school areas, many of which are First Nations or Métis communities. The program reaches more than 16,500 children in 63 Alberta schools.

"Having Canadian Natural as a partner has proven to be invaluable,” says Jenn Flynn , Director of APPLE Schools. “We have greatly enhanced our community partnerships as a result of their engagement in the project and they have helped us understand the communities from a different perspective. We are very thankful for the tremendous support and leadership in supporting healthy kids in healthy schools.”

The Northern Lights Health Foundation and Canadian Natural have a long-standing partnership to support health and wellness in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Over the years, we have provided medical equipment, health programs and revitalized health service spaces to support both urban and rural communities. Most recently, Canadian Natural pledged $625,000 over five years to support two important projects: the renovation of the Continuing Care floor of the Northern Lights Health Centre in Fort McMurray for long-term residents care, and the refurbishment of the community clinic in Conklin.
