Community programs

Northwestel is grateful to you – the people we have served for more than 40 years – because you are the ones who make our business possible.

We demonstrate our gratitude by supporting the things that matter to you – things like sporting events, cultural activities, health programs, recycling projects, music festivals, science fairs, spelling bees, even amateur radio broadcasting. Northwestel gives more than half a million dollars annually in cash and donated services to not-for-profit organizations in Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and northern British Columbia.

Our employees live and work in the North, raise their children and support their families here, and give back as volunteers and advocates of community causes. We think it makes good sense to reward their efforts. So in addition to our sponsorships, Northwestel contributes through the Volunteer Involvement Fund. The Fund converts employee volunteer hours into direct financial aid for the organizations our employees choose to support.

As we strive to nurture and develop the North and enhance the quality of life for Northerners, we think about which non-profit organizations really matter to you, our customers and help make our communities better places to live. Bringing people together and making a difference in their lives is our way of creating a lasting effect and saying thank you.
