MEGlobal enjoys playing an active role in the communities in which we operate, and is committed to enhancing the quality of life wherever we can. Our Community Contributions Program supports projects that demonstrate measurable, significant positive impact and align with at least one element of our sustainability philosophy: economic prosperity, social responsibility and environmental stewardship.
Key features of our Community Contributions Program are:
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. During the summer months, the Ellis Bird Farm is open to visitors to walk the trails and beautiful gardens, and discover the world’s largest outdoor collection of bluebird nest boxes.

MEGlobal sponsors one of the all-hybrid electric bus fleet in the town of Banff. Wrapped in Banff National Park wildlife images, the bio-diesel electric buses entered public use in June 2008. Banff is North America’s first known municipality to have an entire public transit fleet of hybrid vehicles, which are expected to reduce fuel consumption by around 30 percent and produce less emissions. MEGlobal has a special connection to the city of Banff, having held its first global employee conference here in 2007. For more information: www.banff.ca
MEGlobal is proud to be signature sponsor of the MEGlobal Athletic Park in Lacombe. Construction of the park is nearly complete, and its opening in 2011 is eagerly awaited by the entire region. The park will enhance the Lacombe and surrounding region by providing a first-rate facility for sport and entertainment events. We look forward to what the Park will mean to the community now, and in years to come.
