Westland Foundation approaches sponsorship opportunities as partnerships designed to meet the needs of both the sponsor and the Foundation.

A sponsorship association with the Westland Foundation is an opportunity to support scholarships for inner-Winnipeg students while raising the profile of your company or business.

TransCanada Invests In Education and Training In Communities

TransCanada is pleased to invest in education and training in communities where they do business. Through their community efforts, they aim to promote capacity-building, develop the next generation of community leaders, and provide a skilled workforce for the industry.

TransCanada is delighted with their recent sponsorship of the Westland Foundation. The sponsorship enables them to support the education and training of Westland’s diverse group of Inner Winnipeg Scholars.

Carla says, “TransCanada believes in the importance of post-secondary education. With the scholarship, Westland prepares the way for Inner Winnipeg students to participate in the ever evolving job market.”

Carla personally provides mentoring and networking opportunities to women in skilled trade and engineering programs. As a woman working in a highly technical environment, she is very much in support of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as well as in skilled trades.

Carla is inspired to work everyday with a team of people committed to the company’s values. She is proud of TransCanada’s leadership in the responsible development and reliable operation of energy infrastructure in North America as well as its commitment to being a good neighbour and a trusted community partner everywhere they operate.

Carla encourages other companies to continue to be a catalyst in improving our communities. She reminds us that we all live and work in these communities, contributing to the communities’ success benefits us all.

Carla says, “Be present, be involved, and be an example. Don’t underestimate the value of being involved  in our communities at any levels!”

TransCanada Corporation has been a table sponsor at Westland’s Annual Breakfast Fundraiser. In 2016, TransCanada intensified its involvement in Westland by sponsoring the Job Finding Program. This year, TransCanada is a proud breakfast sponsor of the fundraiser this June.

On behalf of the Westland Scholars, a huge thank you for TransCanada’s unwavering support!
