MEGlobal in the Community

Community Outreach

MEGlobal believes in ongoing and open discussions with our neighbors regarding our operations, safety programs, environmental conditions and the many other aspects of industrial operations that impact the communities in which we operate.

To facilitate discussion, MEGlobal participates in the Community Advisory Panels (CAPs) connected with our manufacturing sites in Fort Saskatchewan and Red Deer. These CAPs, comprising local residents and representatives of both MEGlobal and Dow, meet on a regular basis to review a variety of topics of common interest and concern. The CAPs recommend ways to improve communications with the general public, and provide input on community issues that the company may address as a corporate neighbor.

Community Participation

MEGlobal employees are encouraged to be active members of their communities. Employees involved in volunteerism with non-profit or charitable groups, can access annual funding through the Employee Involvement Program (EIP).

In addition, MEGlobal operates a community contributions program that demonstrates support for local initiatives that contribute to environmentally, economically and socially sustainable communities. One example of this program include:

  • Sponsorship of the Ellis Bird Farm, a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of Mountain Bluebirds, Tree Swallows and other native cavity-nesting birds.
