ENMAX team members help enrich, strengthen communities


Calgary, Alta. – ENMAX team members spent the year volunteering thousands of hours to help strengthen and enrich our communities.

Team members volunteered over 4,500 hours in 2022, raising over $160,000 for close to 200 charitable organizations which help build strong communities and support vulnerable people with essential needs.

From preparing food bank hampers and volunteering for the Calgary Humane Society to making seniors’ homes more energy efficient, ENMAX team members came together to give back.

"Giving back is a part of who we are at ENMAX and our team members live this every day," said Brandie Yarish, Chief Human Resources Officer, EVP Safety and Community Engagement at ENMAX Corporation. "Thank you to our team members for their enthusiasm, generosity and everything they do to enhance our communities–they make us all proud."

Through organized events and individual efforts, team members supported causes and organizations including the Calgary Drop-in Centre, Distress Centre, Calgary Food Bank, Calgary Humane Society and Calgary Seniors Resource Society.

Many of these charitable organizations help Calgary's most vulnerable with essential needs and ENMAX double-matched all employee donations to our energy affordability partners as part of ENMAX's annual employee giving program.

"We are grateful to ENMAX volunteers for preparing your fire-retardant clothing to be repurposed and placed in the hands of those at risk of or experiencing homelessness. For so many, the lack of adequate work clothing serves as a barrier to them securing employment, regaining independence, and providing for their loved ones. The time and donations from ENMAX volunteers continue to serve as a bright light and source of hope throughout our community." —Colin Richardson, Stakeholder Engagement Specialist at the Calgary Drop-In Centre

"The impact of ENMAX’s generosity can be seen around the shelter—from painting projects to foster placements—ENMAX volunteers continue to help us achieve our mission of helping as many animals as we can. When I see the ENMAX logo in our community, I am instantly filled with warm thoughts of generosity. Knowing ENMAX is in our corner truly helps our strength as an organization.” —Anna-Lee Fitzsimmons, Associate Director of Community Engagement for the Calgary Humane Society
