Social Purpose 

We acknowledge that we have a significant role in our community which is why we take diverse ideas and perspectives into consideration and even incorporate them into our projects.

A lot of our work follows a community benefit plan which ensures that investment from projects is put back into the community.  This allows us to provide employment opportunities to local people; offer training; expand diversity in local businesses; reduce poverty; utilize first source hiring; eliminate social isolation and incorporate local purchasing. Furthermore, it helps secure work and provide fair wages to those underrepresented in skilled trades.

We are also proud supporters of non-profit organizations such as the United Way and partner with them on several local and national initiatives year-round. We’ve been advocates for the organization for 20 years and have raised nearly $2,000,000 for the communities where we live and work. During our campaigns, we join together with our staff and industry partners to provide support, raise funds and bring attention to important issues.

Additionally, a number of Chandos’ executives have been part of the United Way’s Cabinet, including CEO Tom Redl who was Co-Chair of the Alberta Capital Region’s 2016 campaign.
