Printing Unlimited Awards & Nominations
Printing Unlimited is a proud nominee of the Brilliant Beginnings Award in the 2021 Because of You awards.

This business demonstrated its commitment to the community by inspiring its fellow staff members to donate, volunteer or participate in United Way activities.

Printing Unlimited looks forward to continuing a great partnership in 2022 with United Way.
Spotlight on Fort McMurray Causes
Printing Unlimited is a proud community sponsor for many local athletes, and a committed partner with several non-profit organizations:
Local HERO Foundation
Established in 1991, Local HERO Foundation provides 24/7 emergency helicopter services to residents of Northeastern Alberta. Its skilled pilots and crew members assist in dispatching emergency personnel for search & rescue, medical emergencies, environmental damage, and law enforcement. This worthwhile organization is a significant contributor to the safety and wellbeing of the community in Fort McMurray.
Printing Unlimited gives back to Local HERO through contributions of print materials to help spread the word about its cause and encourage donations so that its program can continue to have an impact.
Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta
With the tagline, “Inspiring Girls to be Strong, Smart, and Bold,” Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta actively pursues its mission with a variety of programs to build skills and confidence in young women in the Fort McMurray and surrounding communities. In 2020, 1,575 girls participated in programs by Girls Inc., including 11 different programs and 4 workshops. Programs include a healthy living curriculum that encourages girls to view their bodies more positively, and life skills-building programs for confidence, goal-setting, and leading productive lives.
Printing Unlimited gives back to Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta through contributions of print materials to help spread the word about its cause and encourage donations so that these programs can continue to be sustained and grow.
Fort McMurray SPCA
A well-known and much-needed cause in every community, the Fort McMurray SPCA played a particularly important role in our community during the fires of 2016. Over 88,000 residents were evacuated, with many forced to make the difficult decision to leave their pets behind. In support of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Bylaw Services Animal Control, the Fort McMurray SPCA assisted in an emergency pet rescue operation. The Fort McMurray SPCA continues to play a vital role in the wellbeing of animals’ lives, providing shelter, food bank services, and adoption, as well as community wellness, with its Book Buddies and Cat Yoga programs.
Printing Unlimited gives back to the Fort McMurray SPCA through contributions of print materials. This collaboration benefits the SPCA by aiding their efforts to promote the organization and bring awareness to its programs, as well as encourage donations and support.
APPLE Schools Initiative
APPLE Schools is an innovative school-focused health promotion initiative. It improves the lives of ~ 21,000 students annually in 75 schools in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Northwest Territories. The project supports healthy eating, physical activity, and mental health by implementing the comprehensive school health model, and is governed by a board of directors chaired by Dr. Lory Laing.
