Chevron Canada is committed to partnering with Aboriginal communities where we operate to build an understanding of each other's aspirations and concerns. We work with Aboriginal communities to identify opportunities for investment and collaboration. Accordingly, we have a range of programs designed to focus on health and wellness, culture, education, heritage protection and economic development.
Chevron supports activities and events that celebrate Aboriginal culture and heritage including Jamborees, Pow Wows, and Treaty Day celebrations in our areas of operation.
Chevron provides funding to the Inuvialuit Education Fund in the NWT and to Aurora College to help Northern students access programs and scholarships. We also provide funding to the Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation to support music, science and math programs.
