Youth in Priority Neighbourhoods
We believe in giving back to the communities that are home to the Brunswick Pipeline. We invest in campaigns, events, and organizations that make these communities a better place to live, with a focus on initiatives that support youth.
Browse some of our recent donations that contribute to the well-being of youth in priority neighbourhoods.
Crescent Valley Resource Centre (CVRC)
Emera New Brunswick has donated $25,000 to the Crescent Valley Resource Centre each year since we began operations. The CVRC provides countless programs to the community, including educational, social, food security and recreational programming at no charge.
Emera Promise Partnership Bursary
Since 2012, we have donated $75,000 towards the Emera Promise Partnership Bursary, which recognizes and awards students who attended Hazen White-St. Francis School and participated in the UNB Saint John Promise Partnership. The Bursary covers tuition and books for students admitted to post-secondary education at UNB.
Saint John Y
Emera New Brunswick is the presenting sponsor for the Red Triangle Awards. This annual event honours some of Saint John’s best and brightest while raising money for the YMCA’s Strong Communities Campaign. We have also contributed to the Y’s Send a Kid to Camp Campaign. We know that at camp, friendships are formed, new skills learned, and lifelong memories made, so we were pleased to support this Campaign, which ensures that kids get to experience camp this summer.
BCAPI (Business Community Anti-Poverty Initiative)
We provide $5,000 in ongoing support to BCAPI, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to poverty reduction in Saint John. Additionally, our General Manager, Rob Belliveau, volunteers his time by serving on BCAPI’s Leadership Team. BCAPI’s mission is focused on working together with people living in poverty, community organizations and government, to substantially reduce the number of people who live in poverty in Greater Saint John. In 2018, Emera New Brunswick also made an additional $50,000 contribution to BCAPI in support of a pilot program called “When Children Succeed.” BCAPI partnered with Anglophone School District - South to change the future of 1,000 Saint John students – and provide a model for New Brunswick’s education system to ensure every student has an equal opportunity to succeed.
