Cenovus Energy is the driving force behind our I.C.A.N! (Inclusive Community Activities No Barriers) programs which give our participants the opportunity develop skills and increase self-confidence by participating in community activities with the support of a Recreation Inclusion Coordinator. Cenovus also supports our staff and volunteer development and we firmly believe that our inclusion training has a positive ‘ripple effect’ throughout the community.


Nexen CNOOC Ltd. annually supports our fee assistance and subsidies program, ensuring that Between Friends programming is available to anyone who wants to participate. Between Friends goal is to remove financial barriers to participation in social, recreational and self-development activities. This is done by subsidizing fees and making fee assistance available for families who qualify.


Newalta has been the presenting sponsor for our Charity Golf Classic since 2011 and each year works tirelessly with us to make the event a success. In 2015, their generous funding was used to create extra spaces for our Minnows at Camp Bonaventure in order to ensure participants aged 4-7 are able to experience Camp.


Business Fore Calgary Kids Foundation

The Business Fore Calgary Kids Foundation helps to support Between Friends in providing quality social, recreation and self-development opportunities to communities in the North-East. With their generous funding, we’re hoping to focus on building awareness of Between Friends programming, developing relationships with disability, immigrant and ethno-cultural organizations in the NE, and working to engage families and a culturally diverse population.
