Community Engagement

We strive to develop and work hard to maintain strong, mutually-beneficial relationships with our communities. We believe communication must be based on honesty, trust and – above all – respect. It’s not just what we say, it’s what we do, and we believe living our values gives our stakeholders confidence in our commitment to responsible operations.

We build relationships at the local level wherever we can. Our people are often members of the community where they work and share a vested interest in the community’s development. We connect regularly with our stakeholders to provide updates, seek input, help identify opportunities and find ways to address potential concerns.

Because we often work on or near traditional indigenous land – both in Canada and the United States – connecting with our indigenous neighbours regularly is our way of maintaining positive, respectful relationships. Learning about traditional culture, wildlife and each community’s connection to the environmental landscape is critical to our understanding of how best to operate in the area. 

Engagement Planning

When we start developing an engagement plan, we consider all stages of the associated project’s lifecycle. From development through operations and to eventual decommissioning, we consult early and often to identify concerns and opportunities. Our goal is to encourage mutual understanding throughout the entire project lifecycle.

Engagement is not about checking a box or satisfying regulatory requirements. It’s about the benefit of long-term relationships. We value the relationships we have built over the years and recognize the key to their success is putting in the work, demonstrating respect and staying open to ongoing dialogue.

Collaboration is Key

"Enerplus, along with previous companies, has drilled wells on my land for generations. What sets Enerplus apart is that they put in the extra effort of getting everyone together in the field so we are on the same page. This past winter in 30 below weather, we viewed new drill locations from the comfort of a couple of trucks, as the guys used 'georeferenced mapping' so I could see the proposed boundaries live as we drove around. As we looked at each site, we worked together to find a spot for the leases everyone was happy with."

"Adopt-a-Well" program at the Mandaree School on the Ft. Berthold Indian Reservation

Designed to walk 8th grade students through the life-cycle of a well, the "Adopt-a-Well" program starts the class with geology/land right through to the production phase. We take the class out to visit their well location and host a party for the class where they are "tested" on what they learned about oil/gas development, using their adopted well as the example.

Started in 2012, Enerplus is working to expand the Adopt-a-Well program to other schools on the Ft. Berthold Indian Reservation.

Best in Community Support Award

Enerplus was awarded Best in Community Support at the 2019 MHA Energy Expo Awards, held in North Dakota.

Community Investment

We believe our role as an engaged corporate community partner is to support our communities’ ability to improve their social, economic and environmental situation. We rely on our people in each of their individual communities - wherever we work and live - to tell us what is most needed and where we can have the most impact. 

Community Investment Program Elements

Giving back isn’t always about cutting a cheque. It’s about making an investment with our time and talent too.  That’s why we support our communities through donations, sponsorships, in-kind contributions and volunteerism. 

In 2019, Enerplus contributed over $700,000 to support our communities through partnerships with non-profit organizations and matching employee giving. We encourage employee volunteerism by offering one paid day specifically for volunteering, and by organizing employee volunteer opportunities. Supporting employee volunteerism is a visible way we live our values and culture.

Pillars of Giving

Our pillars of giving focus our support where it can have the greatest impact:


A few examples include:

  • Denver Museum of Nature and Science
  • American Indian College Fund
  • Southeast Regional Library - Oungre Branch

A few examples include:

  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter
  • North Dakota Safety Council

A few examples include:

  • Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
  • Medicine Hat & District Health Foundation
  • Wainwright & District Handivan Society

We take a proactive approach to corporate giving, looking for partners whose mandates align with our pillars rather than waiting for requests to come to us. We assess our partner relationships on an annual basis so that we know we’re supporting them the best way possible – we want people to feel like their community is better with Enerplus as a part of it.
