Cameco's people provide important leadership to community organizations and campaigns. Since beginning in 2004, our Employee Giving campaigns have provided almost $12.3 million back into our local communities. Funds support the local United Ways in Saskatoon and Area and Northumberland County (Ontario), as well as dozens of charities personally chosen by individual employees.
In 2021, the Cameco-wide Employee Giving campaign resulted in $278,523 (a 26% increase over 2020) raised to benefit a variety of charities in our local communities.
