IN THE COMMUNITY
Each year Cameco receives many worthy requests to support community-building initiatives in northern Saskatchewan. While all requests for investments and sponsorships are carefully reviewed, Cameco gives priority to initiatives that promote youth activities in the following areas:
- Health and wellness
- Sports and recreation
We are dedicated to investing in important youth initiatives as a way of giving back to the communities in which we operate. To learn more about some of our community investment initiatives, watch our VIDEO — Making a difference with U — English | Cree | Dene | Dene (Patuanak)
While historically, Cameco has invested in a wide range of initiatives, the decision to focus more on youth initiatives came at the request of elders and community leaders in northern Saskatchewan who have been clear that Cameco must "do something for the kids". (from the 2007 Survey of Elders and Community Leaders)
If you have an important youth-related initiative or event, we urge you to submit an application online.
Quote from the report: "Northern leadership and elders are very concerned about young people; their mental, spiritual and physical health. Overwhelmingly, they are asking for investments in filling the gaps in the northern educational system along with providing recreational facilities and programming. They are concerned about young people being not only "job ready," but also their ability to reach for the higher paying jobs through the path of math and sciences (from the 2007 Survey of Elders and Community Leaders)."
