Communities

Community Investment

​​Vale is one of the world’s largest mining companies, and we owe much of that success to the individual communities that make up the larger whole. Strong communities strengthen our business, which is why Vale strives to build strong relationships with the communities we’re part of. We seek out partnerships that will:

1. Support initiatives that bolster the health, environmental and educational capacity in our communities.

2. Enhance national, provincial and regional programming.

3. Create a community of engaged, civic-minded employees and friends.

4. Build the infrastructure that a community needs to reach its potential.

Each year, Vale proudly invests millions of dollars in Canadian organizations.
