Bruce Power fullBruce Power is launching a new $1.2 million Aboriginal Community Investment Fund that will seek to invest in key community, educational, environmental, training and youth development initiatives in local Aboriginal communities from 2016 to 2020.

“Bruce Power is excited to launch this new Aboriginal Community Investment Fund that will be available to local First Nations and Metis communities, as we work together to support their important initiatives,” said James Scongack, Bruce Power’s Vice President, Corporate Affairs. “This is consistent with our long-standing commitment to do our part in building strong communities and to be a company that is focused on progressive Aboriginal relations.”

Bruce Power will launch the multi-year, $1.2 million fund in 2016, and will accept applications for programs that focus on local community initiatives, education, the environment, training and youth development. The company plans to invest a total of $300,000 annually over the four-year period.

“These initiatives have been long-standing focus areas for Bruce Power and we believe this fund will allow us to reinforce our support in these important areas,” Scongack added.

The fund will start accepting applications through our Community Investment page, on January 11, 2016.
