Edmonton, Alberta (June 5, 2023) – PCL Construction is pleased to announce a combined $600,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross and American Red Cross disaster management programs. This commitment continues our long-time partnership with Red Cross and will see $100,000 donated to each agency this year and in 2024 and 2025.
As part of its worldwide efforts, the Red Cross assists victims of weather emergencies and other catastrophic disasters across North America and supports humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. At PCL, we’re committed to building a better future together, and this renewed commitment will help Red Cross immediately deploy resources where they’re needed most.
“Recent news of wildfires and other extreme weather events in Canada and the United States reminds us that a disaster can suddenly leave people without basic necessities,” said Dave Filipchuk, president and CEO, PCL Construction. “PCL is committed to leaving positive legacies in the communities where we live and work, and contributing to Red Cross is just one way we do that.”
PCL’s donations provide financial support for Red Cross disaster management programs in both Canada and the United States. These programs prepare communities for crisis situations through investment in disaster-response operations, training and infrastructure. PCL has also contributed to specific disaster relief efforts, including Red Cross responses to wildfires in Fort McMurray, earthquakes in Haiti and Hurricane Katrina.

This commitment will bring PCL’s total contributions to the Canadian and American Red Cross societies to $2.85 million since 2011.
