PCL believes in building strong communities by contributing time, talent, and resources to the localities in which employees live and work.
PCL employees recognize that coworkers, neighbors, and families all benefit from living in healthier, stronger communities, and help to bring this about by providing financial support to United Way. United Way supports local agencies that offer a variety of human service programs that help make communities more secure and resilient.
PCL’s 48-year relationship with United Way is founded in a multitude of district-run campaigns and a corporate matching program. In 2016, PCL raised more than $6.6 million for 19 United Way and member organizations throughout North America. From donation challenges to fundraisers and silent auctions, PCL employees across the organization have found ways to demonstrate excellence in their commitment to community investment and are together creating a lasting impact on the communities they call home.

initiatives that focus on health and safety training, humanitarian services,
and providing disaster preparedness and relief at home and around the world.
During our six-year partnership, PCL’s support to the Red Cross has gone to
help those affected by numerous natural disasters, including floods, fires, and
Our commitment to Red Cross began in 2012 and will
see $1.2 million donated to the Canadian and American Red Cross over 6 years to

provide financial support for emergent, life-saving Red Cross services—and will
help the organizations to better prepare communities for crisis situations.
