Supporting our communities
Tourmaline is proud to be a responsible and contributing member of the communities in which we operate, including the Edson, Grande Prairie, Fort St. John and Calgary areas in Alberta and British Columbia. We contribute to these communities primarily through our capital program, which benefits local suppliers and vendors, creates jobs and generates tax revenue for regional municipalities. We are a significant employer in the region. Building strong and mutually beneficial relationships with our communities is integral to our business strategy.
Tourmaline supports various local causes, both through charitable initiatives and employee volunteer hours, with a particular emphasis on youth, education, health and sport. Learn more about our charitable initiatives in our Sustainability Report.

Building long-lasting relationships with Aboriginal communities
Tourmaline is committed to working with Aboriginal communities in the areas in which we operate. We recognize the unique rights that such communities hold in the land, and we seek to build strong, long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationships. We consult in a respectful, timely and culturally appropriate manner, and we recognize that our projects may have impacts on lands that have been traditionally utilized by Aboriginal peoples for generations. We strive to ensure the highest level of mitigation is applied to our projects to minimize impacts to First Nations communities and the environment.
Tourmaline is a member of CAPP’s Aboriginal Relations Committee.
