Stantec in the Community Day 2016

On September 21, 2016, almost a third of our employees volunteered for our fourth annual Stantec in the Community Day. That’s 8,000 people supporting our communities by cleaning up beaches, upgrading arts centers, sorting donations, flipping burgers, and more.

In Alberta South, the 4th Annual Stantec in the Community Day has been our biggest event yet with 527 volunteers working in Calgary, Okotoks, Cochrane, Airdrie, Sundre, and Lethbridge. We were especially eager to help in this challenging economic time when our community needs us more than ever. See below for what each of our groups were up to in their volunteer activity:
