Our community investment program encompasses strong relationships with the communities in which we operate. 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.
The 2020 Step Up for Mental Health run/walk, was a virtual event on Oct 7-12, 2020. From this event, the Cameco Fund for Mental Health awarded grants totalling almost $384,000 to 22 projects making a difference for mental health.
Congratulations to this year's recipients!
A pandemic may have changed our world, but it hasn't changed Cameco's commitment to communities.

In 2020, the Cameco-wide Employee Giving campaign resulted in $221,325 raised to benefit a variety of charities in our local communities.
