Giving back to the Heartland

Cleaning up our community, one bit of trash at a time.

Our team of dedicated workers at Heartland Petrochemical Complex (HPC) not only live and work in the local communities, they also believe in actively giving back to the Heartland we’re so proud to call home. That’s why last month, our HPC team rolled up their sleeves to pick up trash along the North Saskatchewan River as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a national conservation program that provides Canadians the opportunity to take action in their communities wherever water meets land, picking up one bit of trash at a time. Cloudy skies and 70 km/h winds didn’t stop our team from cleaning up the shoreline. “The fact that people are committed to come here and give back is amazing,” says Project Coordinator Jay Llanos. “It shows our camaraderie, and that people are having fun.”

Taking part in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is part of Inter Pipeline’s iCare initiative, which contributed $3.4 million to community initiatives in 2020. “To work for a company that supports me in doing this, it means a lot,” says Projects Supervisor Joanne Martineau. “Because I do care for the environment, I do care for outdoor activities, and I do care for keeping people safe.”
