Canada-wide Issues

Social

At ConocoPhillips Canada, stakeholders are defined as individuals and groups who may be affected, or are interested in our proposed projects. Across our operations, these individuals and groups include:

  • Aboriginal Peoples
  • Landowners/occupants
  • Trappers
  • Community members
  • Government organizations and regulators
  • Non-government organizations
  • Synergy and multi-stakeholder groups
  • Industry (e.g. oil and gas, mining and agriculture)

For each project, we engage with our stakeholders to understand their values and interests, learn their expectations of us, and then incorporate what we learn into our business plans and actions. We seek early and continuous engagement with our stakeholders because we want to build trust, garner respect, and develop mutually beneficial relationships with them.

Through engagement, some of the benefits we share with the communities near our operations and areas of development include:

  • Community investment in educational and cultural initiatives
  • Training and education initiatives to help build individual and community employment capacity
  • Employment, local contracting and business development that supports the economic capacity of businesses in the regions where we operate
