Community Investment │ Syncrude


about $5 million


Suncor assumed operatorship of the Syncrude Joint Venture on September 30, 2021. Over the next 12-36 months we’ll seek to integrate the Suncor and Syncrude community investment programs with a focus towards minimizing community impact and continuing to support regional quality of life initiatives.

Eligible Applicants

Syncrude considers a number of criteria when selecting community investment projects, including:

  • Privately-initiated projects or programs (rather than government-funded)
  • Potential benefit to the community and community support
  • The applicant’s contributions to the project
  • The applicant’s initiative, planning, assessment of community need and collaborations with other organizations
  • Support from multi-stakeholder groups
  • Relationship to the oil sands industry, ability to encourage broad public support for Syncrude and opportunity for our employees to use their talents and expertise
  • Sound and measurable objectives, a well-planned approach and a high probability of producing meaningful, positive results
  • Financial need based on assessment of past revenue sources and use of funds
  • One-time contributions are favoured over recurring needs but long term, multi-year projects are considered based on enduring community benefits
  • Other criteria may also be considered

Eligible Expenses

We may provide assistance in the form of funds, materials/equipment or employees’ time and expertise for projects that focus on four key investment areas: Community, Education, Health Safety & Environment, and Indigenous initiatives. The goals of these key investment areas are to:

  • Foster strong, vibrant, and sustainable communities, which help attract and retain a skilled workforce in the areas where we operate.
  • Develop a current and future workforce with enhanced skills and knowledge to support Syncrude and the community’s labour needs.
  • Support health, safety and environment in the region to protect the quality of life and wellbeing of residents and our environment.
  • Encourage thriving Indigenous communities, and thereby provide opportunities for our Indigenous Neighbours who participate in the benefits of oil sands development.
