OUR APPROACH

Meaningful engagement with our communities and Indigenous stakeholders is built on trust and understanding.

We believe that transparent and sustained dialogue with affected stakeholders is not only a fundamental element of our long-term success, it is simply the right thing to do.

Contributing positively to the overall health and economic resiliency of the communities in which we live and operate has long been important to Keyera. Our approach is grounded in one of our core values – Responsibility and Accountability.

To Keyera, this means understanding the interests and perspectives of our stakeholders and ensuring we deliver on our commitments to them.

Our engagement with community stakeholders is centered around three key pillars: (i) meaningful dialogue and engagement; (ii) community investment; and (iii) creating opportunity to enhance social and economic well-being.

Our key stakeholders include Indigenous Peoples, who as First Nations and Metis communities, have a long history with the land on which our assets are located. Within Canada, Indigenous Peoples have inherent treaty rights, and Keyera acknowledges them as distinct stakeholders who may be potentially impacted by our operations, but also as growing partners in our activities.

Safety - at the heart of what we do

At our core is a focus on and commitment to safety. This commitment is distributed across people, communities, and the environment we all share. We want to help local communities thrive, and we know this can only be achieved if we make safety a priority. 

We take pride in being a responsible business with wide-ranging safety processes designed to keep our people and communities safe. Our approach aligns with national, provincial and local safety standards in the areas where we operate. We believe each person at Keyera is responsible for safety and has a role to play in helping us achieve our goal of #1 in Safety Performance, where no one gets hurt at a Keyera workplace. Safety is embedded in our daily work through key programs and systems followed by our people to proactively manage risk and protect the communities where we work.

Stakeholder engagement

Stakeholder engagement is directed at building and maintaining mutually productive and lasting relationships with community stakeholders. To achieve this objective, our approach is guided by the following principles:

Engagement through project lifecycles

To understand the interests and needs of community stakeholders, we focus on developing respectful, meaningful engagement over the lifecycle of our activities. Engagement starts well in advance of project sanctioning, continuing through project development and operation, to decommissioning and reclamation.

Proactive engagement:

  • enables constructive dialogue,
  • creates opportunity for meaningful collaboration; and
  • helps us identify and mitigate potential risk.

 

While our stakeholder engagement is based on responsibility and accountability, it is also guided by another core Keyera value, integrity and trust.

Our stakeholders include individuals or groups who live or work near our operations, or who are currently or could potentially be impacted by our activities. They are identified through the local government’s regulatory process. These include landowners, community members, businesses, organizations, crown disposition holders (such as trappers), as well as government and regulatory agencies.

We know effective engagement requires reaching out in a variety of ways, including informational handouts, one-on-one meetings, open houses, site visits and community meetings. Stakeholders can reach Keyera personnel for further information or to discuss any concerns at [email protected].
