Community Engagement Program

As a company, we have a passion for creating strong and vibrant communities. We aim to make a difference in the places where we live and work. Through donations, sponsorships, and volunteering, we connect with our communities and help strengthen them in meaningful ways.

NOTE: Stantec has an office in Rochester NY.   

A thriving art scene helps bring communities together. With a focus on visual and performing arts organizations, we support community arts through engagement with museums, education programs, symphonies, community arts festivals, arts organizations, and arts funds and councils.

With a focus on educational programs, we’re looking for ways to make education easier to achieve. Using school and business partnerships, we’re helping encourage elementary and secondary students to pursue higher education or training (with an emphasis on skill training in sciences and technology). 

Health & Wellness
We’re proud to support healthcare initiatives that make a difference in the communities where we operate. Health facilities and programs are essential to a healthy, sustainable community. We’ve chipped in with preventative education and training, outreach programs and research, and investment in health initiatives that support physical and mental health care.

We’re conscious of the state of the world’s environment and our responsibility to do what is right when we design. One pillar of our community engagement focuses on programs that promote sustainable development, environmental responsibility, energy efficiency, and air quality—plus those that address climate change.

Easing a student’s financial burden goes a long way to helping them complete their studies. To help youth pursue their post-secondary education and career goals, we’re implementing scholarships in each of our regions. Students looking for information should contact their institution’s awards department, as the scholarships will be administered by the schools. 

Dollars for Doers
We care about the people that work for us. We want them to thrive not only at work but also in their communities –that’s why we started our Dollars for Doers program. We encourage every employee that works with us to take part in initiatives that improve the world around them, so much so that we’ve committed to donating $500 to any charity for 25 hours volunteered to it.
