Community Relations

Engaging with our Partners

Evolugen values it partners and seeks to strengthen its knowledge, understanding and sound management practices through collaboration. While we recognize the symbiotic nature of our relationships with our customers, investors, governments and regulators and collaborate regularly with them, it is the communities and Indigenous peoples proximal to our facilities with whom we share a special bond.

Building Trust with our Communities

Build trust as good stewards by proactively engaging with communities to ensure that their interests are appropriately considered in our decision-making.

Being an active member of the communities where we live and work has always been an integral part of who we are. We recognize the role that our facilities played in contributing to the prosperity of local municipalities for generations, and the importance of maintaining this contribution.

Demonstrating our Commitment

Across our business, we look to actively contribute to the environmental, social and economic well-being of the local community.

We do so by:

  • Engaging proactively to understand community values and expectations and considering them in our management decisions.
  • Providing family-sustaining employment and indirect economic benefits by contracting with local suppliers.
  • Directly contributing to specific community projects, non-profit organizations, local tourism, and recreational and educational programs, including during public emergencies and natural disasters.
  • Providing recreation opportunities to the community by enabling walking, hiking, camping, swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling in a safe manner.

A Local Community Partner

We actively support and contribute to community organizations where we live and work. We value collaborative projects that benefit the community and also encourage employee volunteerism within our company.

In structuring our community initiatives, we focus our support on specific causes, namely medical health assistance, education, community services, environment, sustainable development as well as during public emergencies, such as natural disasters.

One example of such community partnership is our support and participation in the 24H Tremblant charity relay race, which benefits three organizations supporting children. Since first joining the event in 2006, our employee teams have enthusiastically participated by leveraging their personal and professional networks and by developing creative fundraising ideas like bake-sales and hand-crafted ceramic planters. Through a donation matching program, we have helped raise millions of dollars to support this worthy cause.
