Shell Canada donates more than $550,000 to Alberta flood relief effort 
CALGARY, June 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Shell Canada is donating more than $550,000 to 
help Albertans clean up and repair homes and communities following the worst 
floods in living memory. The donation includes $150,000 to the Canadian Red 
Cross, $100,000 to Calgary-area social agencies and First Nations, including 
the hard-hit Siksika Nation, and $250,000 to other affected communities and 
First Nations across Alberta. Shell has also committed to match its employees' 
donations to the Canadian Red Cross, which had reached $50,000 by noon on 
Tuesday 25 June. 
"The floods devastated many communities where Shell employees live and work. 
We are grateful to the hard work and professionalism of our emergency services 
in their quick response to keep people safe. Now our thoughts turn to 
colleagues, neighbours and friends who lost so much and how we can help clean 
up and rebuild homes and communities," said Lorraine Mitchelmore, Shell Canada 
president and country chair. "This continues to be a difficult time for many 
communities, but Albertans are resilient and we will work together to get 
through this as a community. Stay safe." 
Shell Canada asked its Calgary based employees, working in its downtown 
offices, to work remotely or volunteer in their communities until further 
notice. Business continuity plans are in places across all business operations 
and all Shell Canada's oil and natural gas facilities are operating normally; 
providing the city and Province with heat power and fuel products. Employees 
directly affected by the floods have been given leave to focus on their 
personal circumstances.
