Employee Support

We believe that through the support of our employees, we can make a positive impact in communities we live in and we support employees who volunteer for organizations that are meaningful to them. MEG has three programs to support employees who volunteer their own time or donate funds to charitable organizations in their communities. MEG also offers opportunities to volunteer with our community partners like Trellis, The Calgary Zoo and Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids.

MEG Match

MEG matches employee donations to approved charitable organizations as an incentive for employees to contribute to organizations that are meaningful to them. Donations of $20 or more are matched by MEG with no annual limit.

MEG Volunteer Grants

MEG encourages employees to give back to communities by volunteering their time as volunteers or as coaches for youth athletic teams. In 2023, we awarded more than 60 volunteer grants to MEG employees.

MEG offers financial grants to employees who volunteer their time to coach teams in their communities, to a limit of $1,000 per year.
