The power of connection is key to building a brighter future
Through our social investment program, Keyera Connects, we partner with organizations and support causes that strengthen the environment, advance Indigenous reconciliation and build resiliency in the communities in which we are a part.
Connecting energy for life means you can count on us to deliver more than just energy. We’re committed to being a force for good and making positive, lasting change in the areas we operate and the communities our people call home.
Our focus areas
We are committed to making meaningful and long-term impact across three key areas:
We are committed to preserving the natural landscapes we call home. Through our Environmental Innovation pillar, we invest in conserving our ecosystems for future generations and innovative solutions to advance the energy transition and our industry to cleaner, lower-emitting sources of energy.
Reconciliation begins with understanding the truths of history. Through our Indigenous Reconciliation pillar, our approach will be to listen with humility as we collaborate with Indigenous Peoples, communities and organizations to determine areas of focus and impact that build capacity and strength for a better future for all.
Resilient communities respond and adapt effectively to changes, challenges, adversity and opportunities. Through our Community Resiliency pillar, we support the infrastructure and programs that build resiliency in the communities where we live and work today and sustainably into the future.
Strong partnerships fuel lasting change
By building relationships with those who care about the same things we do, we can understand the needs of communities and connect strengths and expertise to make a difference not just today, but long into the future.

Some examples of key partnerships across our pillars, include:
Environmental InnovationKeyera has partnered with Ducks Unlimited on an Indigenous Wetland Pilot Project in the county of Grande Prairie, Alberta, with the goal of bridging traditional wetland knowledge and western wetland science. Through partnership with the Alberta Ecotrust Foundation, Keyera is supporting people and projects that address Alberta’s most pressing environmental challenges and opportunities.
Indigenous ReconciliationWe’re proud to partner with Indspire, an Indigenous national charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people. Keyera supports the “Building Better Futures Scholarship Program”, where we provide bursaries to Indigenous youth attending post-secondary institutions. We also partner with the Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association, which supports 21 community-based Friendship Centres across Alberta.
Community ResiliencyTo help strengthen social connections and augment the health and safety of our communities, we support first responders and critical infrastructure like hospitals, community gathering places and centres. Some of Keyera’s partnerships include STARS Air Ambulance, the Alberta Children’s Hospital, the Rimbey Peter Lougheed Community Centre, the Anzac Recreation Centre, the Cushing, Oklahoma Community Food Pantry, and more.
Our people in the community
Keyera supports causes our employees care about through our employee community care days and United Way employee matching program:
- Employee Community Care Days: Keyera offers two paid days each year for employees to support organizations or causes they are most passionate about. That could be volunteering in their kid’s classroom, supporting a food bank, cleaning up a local park and much more. In 2021, Keyera employees donated nearly 5,000 hours serving their local communities.
- United Way employee matching: Each year, Keyera employees come together in support of the United Way and the many opportunities it supports. To help double the impact, Keyera matches employee donations. In total, Keyera and our employees have invested over $7 million to help build community resiliency and improve local lives.
