Spectra Energy Congratulated on 50 Years in Fort Nelson

Shown is Acting Mayor Todd Osbourne as he presents a print and congratulates Gary Weilinger, Vice President External Affairs, on Spectra Energy's 50 years of operations in Fort Nelson. Also present from Spectra Energy were Steven Henderson, Manager Community and Aboriginal Relations and Angus Dickie, Community Coordinator.

The history of Spectra, in the company’s various corporate forms, is also very much the history of the community, and the fortunes of both have been irrevocably tied over the years. Fort Nelson has been very fortunate to be home to a company that has been repeatedly been recognized as one of Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens. Spectra Energy has also been named to the World’s Most Ethical Companies List by the Ethisphere Institute. Their corporate presence is widespread in the community; it is a rare event that does not see sponsorship from Spectra Energy.

As local stakeholders, they have contributed to health care, most recently in the form of housing to attract new doctors to the area. Their employees are part of the cultural landscape as well, engaging in activities as volunteers and participants.It would not be an exaggeration to say that Fort Nelson would be a very different community without the stabilizing influence that such a long-term corporate base lends. We can only hope that the coming years see even more success for both Spectra Energy and the Northern Rockies!
