  • Supportive of one of our three core areas that we view as integral for a sustainable community

Examples of qualified organizations

  • Medical research and infrastructure
  • Community-based emergency services
  • Health-based organizations
  • Education providers
  • Social services agencies
  • Environmental and safety agencies  
  • Professional and amateur cultural organizations

  • Advocacy or lobby initiatives

Decisions are typically made within eight weeks of receipt of a complete Community Investment application, although decisions on major funding requests may take longer.

Emergency response organizations invited to apply for a Safe Community grant can expect a funding decision by June or by December, depending on the date of application.

Organizations receiving funding will be asked to provide a final report detailing the results and benefits achieved through the funded project, program, or campaign.

Please note

Meeting Enbridge's core set of community investment criteria does not guarantee funding. In spite of our significant investment in communities, we are unable to support all worthy, well-qualified organizations.

Criteria may vary by location.
