Lantic is actively involved in supporting local community initiatives where it has operations or offices. Through our different operating units, for the years 2008 to 2010 inclusively, the company has donated over $500,000. These donations help to further medical research, purchase needed equipment for hospitals, fund school activities in poverty-stricken neighborhoods, as well as contributing to cultural and artistic causes. The United Way campaign is a prime example of an event that the company supports on a yearly basis by organizing a fund raising campaign in its operations and by matching its employees' contributions.
Lantic also supports its employees who are involved in fund raising events or in other initiatives. As an example, every year a gathering of non-perishable food items and toys is organized for the distribution of Christmas baskets in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve area where the Montreal refinery is located.
We also believe it is important to give back to the people by being involved in the social development of the community.
