Weyburn and District Hospital Foundation
The health and safety of our employees and communities is of utmost importance to us. As such, we've recently committed $4.5 million to the Weyburn and District Hospital Foundation to help build a new facility. With continuing growth in the area and the advancement of technologies, we are thrilled to help support the construction of a modern and well equipped hospital for Weyburn and the surrounding area.

After supporting STARS in Alberta and seeing the tremendous impact the organization has had on the community, Crescent Point wanted the same security for its employees — and all people — in Saskatchewan. As lead and founding donor, we’ve worked alongside STARS and the Saskatchewan government to implement a program that provides peace of mind for our employees, their families and the people of Saskatchewan. In 2010, we committed $5 million to get this program off the ground and are excited to see the vision become a reality.
STARS began flying missions out of Regina in April 2012 and opened a second base in Saskatoon later that year. By the end of 2015, STARS had flown over 3,000 missions in Saskatchewan, assisting the rescue efforts in approximately 500 communities.
We’re proud to be part of an organization that complements an already stellar emergency ground response program in the province.
Inn From the Cold
Crescent Point has had a long partnership with Inn From the Cold, a Calgary organization whose mission it is to provide emergency shelter, support and programs to homeless children, their families and others in need, with the goal of building healthy, stable families and ending homelessness.
One of our initiatives with Inn From the Cold is the Crescent Point Kidz Zone. The Kidz Zone is a play room for guests of all ages at the Inn, with everything from toys to movies and a relaxing room just for new moms. Through our financial contributions and with the help of our employee volunteer program, we’re committed to providing annual maintenance and upkeep of the room every year, making sure that it’s always outfitted with new toys and any other needs of the Inn and its guests.
In addition to the Crescent Point Kidz Zone, we are proud to be the title sponsor of Inn From the Cold’s annual fundraising gala. We also partner with the Calgary Stampeders to support programs that benefit the Inn.
We recognize the importance of up-to-date and reliable EMS equipment when it comes to emergency response. Each year, we allocate a percentage of our community investment budget to contribute to new emergency vehicles, equipment and facilities in the communities where we operate.
