Volunteering is important—it enriches our society, brings people together, helps you learn new skills or utilize the ones you have, and helps keep organizations going. We’re proud of our employees for taking the initiative to give back to where they live and work, and the Dollars for Doers program is one of the ways Stantec can also give back.
