EDMONTON, ALBERTA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sept. 15, 2015) - Stantec Inc. (TSX:STN)(NYSE:STN) -

Stantec celebrates its annual Stantec in the Community Day on September 15, a day of worldwide community service across the design firm.

More than 7,300 Stantec employees will volunteer at community organizations in Canada, the United States, Barbados, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and India. Stantec in the Community Day is held in addition to the many community outreach activities Stantec employees participate in throughout the year.

"We're inspired by the communities we live in and the impact our work has on them," says Stantec president and chief executive officer, Bob Gomes. "Stantec in the Community Day not only celebrates our commitment to community, it brings our team members together to make a coordinated, local impact."

For 2015, Stantec in the Community Day volunteer events around the world include:

  • In North Bay, Ontario, Stantec team members will design and build a wishing well to help raise funds for the YMCA's Strong Kids campaign.
  • In Camden, New Jersey, 16 team members will plant rain gardens in Camden, a city in the midst of a revival effort that includes solving flooding and water infrastructure challenges.
  • In Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Stantec team members will harvest vegetables at the Saskatoon Food Bank's garden.
  • In Sarasota, Florida, 35 Stantec team members will be at Robinson Preserve helping with restoration efforts of the park's oyster reefs.
  • In Denver, Colorado, 30 Stantec team members will work with Grow Local Colorado to prepare community gardens and gather produce for local shelters and food banks.
  • In Cleveland, Ohio, 15 team members will work with MEDWish to help package medical supplies and equipment that will be used to provide humanitarian aid in foreign countries.

"Our promise at Stantec is to design with community in mind," says Gomes. "What better way to live that promise than to get out into our local communities and roll up our sleeves?"
