Millar Western donates to various causes within the communities where we operate, focusing our investments in the areas of education, health care, poverty alleviation and family- and youth-oriented programs.

The company has established endowments funding scholarships for the pursuit of post-secondary education at the University of Alberta, MacEwan College and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.  We also have a special initiative, the Alexis/Millar Western Scholarship Program, to assist youth from that community in reaching their post-secondary education goals.

Among the agencies that benefit from company support are the United Way, health research initiatives and local food banks. The company has also invested in important community amenities, such as a multi-purpose recreation facility in Whitecourt, and home-building, rink-building and other projects within the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation.


Millar Western provided major funding for the Allan and Jean Millar Centre, a valued recreation and fitness facility serving the Town of  Whitecourt.


We have supported initiatives of the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, including a project to develop carpentry skills for young people while building homes for elders.
