We employ people from all over Canada and the world who want to be a part of Banff National Park. We aim to help people extend themselves into this place. Our staff care, so we gave them a voice. 

We created the Collective Community Commitment, aka ‘CCC’.

Collective Community Commitment

 

The ‘CCC’ is a committee of BHC employees who volunteer their time to give back to the community. They set strategic annual goals in 3 categories:

1) Donations of Time
2) Donations of Money
3) Environmental Responsibility

Armed with a terms of reference and a budget, they are challenged to innovate.

The three ways we

Give Back

Donations of Time

Time is money as the old saying goes. Time is also a personal commitment, which is equally as meaningful.

Donations of Money

We are so lucky to have amazing local organizations doing amazing things. We like to help them out with their hard work.

Environmental Responsibility

Goal setting is a must here. Implementation can be really challenging. It is our job to create a culture of environmental ambassadorship.
