It all starts where we live and work
Having good relationships with the communities we live and work in is critical and SECURE does so by supporting the enrichment and improvement of community well-being.

Everyone Goes Home Safe
Our number one goal every day is to go home safe. Like our values state, Working the SECURE way starts with Working Safely. From operators at our various field locations to employees who work at our Calgary head office and regional offices, safety is a cornerstone of our culture, because if we’re not safe, nothing else matters. Our track record of safe operations demonstrates our commitment to the highest standards and attests to our vision of striving for an injury-free workplace. SECURE is focused on building a sustainable, values-driven safety culture.
Giving back in the communities where we live and work is being a good neighbour.In the last five years alone, SECURE has reinvested over $7.4 million back into communities throughout Western Canada and the US, supporting organizations such as the United Way, STARS Air Ambulance and KidSport.
Regardless of commodity cycles or economic factors out of our control, SECURE remains committed to responsibly reinvest time and money back into the communities that welcomed and continue to support our business.
Advancing relationships with Indigenous communities and providing opportunities for increased economic participation
We are committed to building lasting relationships with Indigenous peoples (link to Stakeholder Engagement page) through respectful engagement and providing opportunities for increased economic participation. We strive to maintain positive relationships that contribute to the sustainable economic and social development in the communities where we do business. We are guided by the framework set out in our Indigenous Relations Policy.
The success of our business relies heavily on the relationships that we have built with our suppliers
We strive to work with organizations who share our core values, sustainability objectives and environmental and social practices. SECURE’s Supplier Code of Conduct was launched in 2020 to establish standards and principles with respect to labour and human rights, business ethics, health and safety, environmental sustainability and stakeholder engagement. We prequalify our contractors and suppliers prior to supplying goods or services to the organization and expect our suppliers to adhere to this Code.
Our Board of Directors has thoughtfully chosen opportunities and provided insight and advisement for long-term sustainable growth at SECURE. The Board is responsible for supervision of our business affairs with the objective of enhancing shareholder value. The Board manages several committees:
- Health, Safety, Sustainability & Environment
- Corporate Governance and Nominating
SECURE has established an effective internal governance structure to help implement sustainability strategies and deliver on our sustainability commitments across the business. All levels of the Corporation have been engaged to drive behaviours and actions to support our sustainability principles led by our organizational value Do the right thing. The Board is committed to expanding its focus on and oversight of sustainability matters, including advancing the integration of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors. SECURE is progressively bringing ESG into all aspects of the organization, as seen integrating materiality assessment into business strategy and tying ESG goals to executive compensation.
