Investing in Community: Manitoba Hydro & Team Folklorama

Manitoba Hydro is a big business making a big difference.

The nature of Manitoba Hydro’s businesses and location of their operations impacts people, communities, and the environment everyday. Manitoba Hydro is a provincial Crown Corporation and one of the largest integrated electricity and natural gas distribution utilities in Canada.

Their mission of helping all Manitobans efficiently navigate the evolving energy landscape, leveraging their clean energy advantage while ensuring safe, clean, reliable energy at the lowest cost possible is just part of their ongoing pledge to making the community a better place to live for all.

Through their Community Investment program, Manitoba Hydro is committed to supporting events and activities that align with their mission to make the province a better place for everyone to live, work, and go to school. It is through this program that Hydro supports community-based organizations, like Team Folklorama, through sponsorship.

“The heart of Folklorama is its large team of volunteers. Year after year, Team Folklorama dedicates their time and energy to ensuring that our Festival is the highlight of the summer, creating a memorable and enjoyable experience for everyone,” states Katie Green, Coordinator, Member & Festival Services. “As a company that is committed to building relationships of trust and respect across the province, Manitoba Hydro recognizes the hard work and passion that every volunteer brings to Folklorama. With their support, we can continue to say thank you to those individuals who make such a large, positive impact on our organization and community.”

The vibrancy and success of the communities Manitoba Hydro operates in directly correlates with their success as an organization.

“Volunteering is a great way to bring positive change to people and communities in general,” states Jackie Britton, Manitoba Hydro Community Investment Representative.  “Manitoba Hydro’s Community Investment program is committed to making the province a better place to live. By sponsoring the Team Folklorama volunteer program, this is our way of supporting the growth of positive communities.”
