Community Outreach

Our operations within the transportation industry has lead us down many roads in British Columbia and Alberta. It gives us the opportunity to interact with many stakeholders ranging from governments to community leaders, associations, businesses, groups, and the public. We recognize that local engagement and involvement are fundamental principles to the process of delivering excellent maintenance, products and construction services for civil infrastructure to all stakeholders. We make a conscious effort to hire local suppliers and students for summer project work and utilize local resources as well.

Selected sponsorships and corporate donations, public service advertising, and use of local suppliers are all ways in which Mainroad gives back to the community.

Since 2011, Mainroad has partnered with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to start an annual community support initiative, The Community Partnership Program. Together, resources and funds are pooled to support a community project in each of our service areas. 

Cycling Community

Although our primary focus is the driving public, Mainroad does recognize another group within the transportation community: the cycling community. Working in conjunction with various local community and cycling community associations, Mainroad is able to combine their roadway expertise with a cyclists’ perspective. We work with various cycling associations and routinely participate in “Bike to Work Week” in regions of the province. Mainroad provides online cycling safety tips and distributes cycling safety brochures around the Lower Mainland and Howe Sound.  Download copy of Hub’s Metro Vancouver Cyclists Handbook

Co-op Student Programs

Mainroad  has also partnered with local universities, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Simon Fraser University and University of British Columbia to hire co-op students seeking a paid work term to gain insight into the “real world” by working with experienced professionals. To date, we have welcomed students seeking work experience in Information Technology, Business, Engineering, Marketing and Communications.
