Community Support


Vale is a partner with Actua, a national charitable organization dedicated to providing hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education to young Canadians. Actua is Canada's largest STEM outreach organization.

Actua delivers summer camps, workshops, and community programs to over 225,000 youth in over 500 communities nationwide through a growing network of members, located in universities across Canada.

Support from Vale has been particularly instrumental in Actua's development and delivery of STEM programs to Aboriginal youth across Canada and in First Nation communities where Vale employees live and work.

In the five years of Vale's partnership with Actua, over 140,000 Aboriginal youth have participated.
