Lafarge Gift to Enhance
Greening Programs, Scholarships

Lafarge Canada Inc. is helping to make the Bow Valley more beautiful with a generous gift to The Banff Centre that will partially go toward new greening initiatives on the Centre’s grounds. The $336,000 donation will support campus greening and create three new scholarships for not-for-profit leaders.

As part of The Banff Centre’s current revitalization project, plans are underway to create LEED-certified greening in public spaces – replanting, creating natural outdoor meeting spaces, building new pathway systems, and eliminating vehicular traffic for the centre of the campus. The project aligns with Lafarge’s interest in environmental protection, natural resource conservation, and community investment.

The second part of the Lafarge program will create new training scholarships for not-for-profit leaders in The Banff Centre’s Leadership Development programs. Three scholarships of $4,000 each will be available every year for three years, beginning in 2009. The scholarships will be called the Lafarge Concrete Community Leaders Scholarship, the Lafarge Aggregate Community Leaders Scholarship, and the Lafarge Construction Community Leaders Scholarship.
