News & Events

photo_community_meetingBoth SIA and our member companies are committed to making positive contributions to the communities where we live and work.

We recognize the value of engagement and are making a difference by promoting dialogue between industry, stakeholders and residents. Whether it is a charitable contribution, a gift of time, or a new awareness of our actions, we all have the ability to make a profound impact.  Here’s some of the ways we are giving back:

  • River Day — SIA hosts the pancake breakfast at the City of Edmonton’s annual River Day event in June at the Rundle Park Family Centre. It’s an event that brings the community together as they learn more about North Saskatchewan River recreational water safety.
  • United Way’s Day of Caring events – Many of our member companies participate in the United Way’s Day of Caring events.  These events fund local social welfare agencies including; Edmonton Food Bank, Hope Mission, the Mustard Seed Homeless Connect Edmonton and KARA Family Resource Centre.
  • Greater Hardisty Community Day

Industry Response During Covid-19 Outbreak

The Strathcona District Mutual Assistance Program (SDMAP), in conjunction with the Strathcona Industrial Association (SIA) support our industry member’s Pandemic Planning and Business Continuity Plans.

We want to assure Strathcona County and East Edmonton residents that we remain prepared to respond to any emergency that occurs at our members’ sites.

Part of SDMAP’s mandate is to be prepared internally for situations such as this, so that Industry members are not a draw on municipal resources during times of emergency.

We remain committed to safety, mutual aid and sharing of best practices. SIA & SDMAP stand with all Canadians as the country deals with the Covid-19 outbreak.

If you want to receive updates on industry activity in the Strathcona area, call the UpdateLine 1-866-653-9959.
