Ellis Bird Farm

MEGlobal is a major sponsor of the Ellis Bird Farm, a working farm and a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of Mountain Bluebirds, Tree Swallows and other native cavity-nesting birds. The Farm is located opposite to our Prentiss manufacturing site in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

MEGlobal Athletic Park

In 2010, MEGlobal proudly became signature sponsor of the MEGlobal Athletic Park in Lacombe. In the years since, the park has developed into a first-rate facility for sport and entertainment events in the region, with more than 50,000 hours of use in 2016 alone. Sports include lacrosse, soccer, rugby, football and quidditch, and 2017 will see the installation of a full size exterior basketball court. The 2017 Alberta High School Provincial games are being hosted at the MEGlobal Athletic Park, bringing up to 4,000 players and fans to Lacombe over two days in the fall.

The North West Mounted Police Fort Saskatchewan

Putting the “Fort” in Fort Saskatchewan
The North West Mounted Police Fort Saskatchewan was in operation on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River from 1875 to 1885. Although the original Fort was taken down, the community’s name “stuck” throughout history, and it seemed to be a missing piece in Fort Saskatchewan’s identity. The City of Fort Saskatchewan struck a plan to restore a representation of the Fort and in 2011, MEGlobal made a multi-year funding commitment to the project that has become a source of local pride as well as wider tourist attraction. Today, the Fort Heritage Precinct is a formidable site, providing those who visit with an exciting link to a proud and colourful history. http://www.fortsask.ca/residents/culture/heritage
