Our community investment program encompasses strong relationships with the communities in which we operate in Canada, Australia, United States and Central Asia. Our program is built on the fundamental belief that supportive communities are a key measure of the company's long-term success. Each year the company targets one percent of after-tax net earnings for community initiatives and projects.
