Family caregiver leaning over and smiling at his wife

Our story.

Looking to make a meaningful difference, Petro-Canada™ asked Canadians about the issues that matter most to them. One issue that everyone was equally passionate about, and thought could use some help: Family Caregiving. That’s because family caregivers devote their lives to helping their loved ones. It can be a challenging role that many step into unexpectedly, to provide critical support often without any training. Nearly all Canadians can see themselves in this reality at some point in their lives. In fact, over 8 million Canadians are living it right now.

So Petro-Canada leaned in to support caregivers themselves; those who go unseen and unsupported. Because caring for those who care for others, it’s the Canadian way, and it’s exactly what is needed to best serve communities across Canada.

With that, The Petro-Canada CareMakers Foundation came to life in November 2020. Our goal is to support family caregivers while inspiring the rest of Canada to do the same. In this initiative, we’re grateful for the support of Suncor, the proud owner of Petro-Canada, for committing to this cause.
