Health, Safety and Environment
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 2016, 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.
For the past three years, Crescent Point has been the title sponsor of the Inn’s annual DreamInn Big Gala. The family focused event raises funds for the Family Support program. In 2016, the galactic-themed gala raised over $192,000.
In addition to the gala, Crescent Point supports several initiatives at the Inn including the Calgary Philharmonic’s Music Camps for Kids, our community ticket program with the Calgary Stampeders, as well as contributing volunteer hours to the Crescent Point Kids Zone.
South of the Divide Conservation Action Plan
The South of the Divide Conservation Action Plan (SODCAP) is an organization comprised of industry, ranchers and provincial government in an effort to conserve at-risk species in southern Saskatchewan. The partnership supports the economic development of the area while ensuring that the natural landscape and habitat for 13 species at risk remain a priority. For more information on SODCAP and their collaboration with industry, please watch this video.
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. Crescent Point was proud to contribute to new EMS facilities in both Frontier, Saskatchewan and Eastend, Saskatchewan in 2016.
