Edmonton, Alberta (March 15, 2024) – PCL Construction was recognized by United Way of the Alberta Capital Region at the annual Red Tie Gala event. PCL and its Edmonton and area employees raised an amazing $2.39 million during their 2023 United Way campaign.

Driving Change, Fueling our Community was the theme of the annual two weeks of fundraising at PCL. This was the 55th year of PCL partnering with and supporting United Way in the region.

“My committee and I set out this year to empower PCLers to take the wheel and drive real change in their communities,” said PCL’s United Way campaign Chair, Ian McKinnon. “I am incredibly proud of the impact PCL made with this campaign, and the Red Tie Gala really affirmed that there is a lot of good happening in our communities to help people when they need it.”

The annual Red Tie Gala celebrates and recognizes the hard work and community spirit witnessed and delivered during the previous year’s fundraising campaign. The event also honours recipients of the Awards of Distinction, recognizing those exceptional individuals and groups who embrace the notion that ordinary people have the potential to achieve extraordinary impact.
