Fluor has a long tradition of community service. While Fluor's core business is centered on engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance, giving back to the communities in which Fluor employees live and work is Fluor's privilege.
Fluor Canada supports that tradition with a strong commitment to volunteerism and philanthropy. Fluor Cares, the company's global community volunteer program, is embraced by employees in Canada who participate in individual volunteer efforts and company-wide initiatives.
Annual community events include:
Since 1995, Fluor has been the official sponsor of the Calgary Stampede's Rope Square. Join Fluor in July 2012, as the company again serves pancakes to thousands to Calgarians and visitors during the event.
Fluor Canada is a long-time supporter of the United Way Make-A-Difference Program, in which Fluor matches 50 cents for every dollar employees give to the United Way and other health and human services organizations. In addition to funds, employees volunteer their time through various Days of Caring activities.
Building Futures Backpack Program
Fluor's global backpack program, Building Futures, distributed more than 10,000 filled backpacks to disadvantaged schoolchildren globally in 2011. In Calgary, more than 200 children received backpacks.
Fluor Calgary office is the founding sponsor of CANstruction Calgary, a volunteer effort across North America, benefitting local food banks. Teams of volunteers build construction projects using canned goods, which are subsequently donated to the local food banks.
