In Ontario, we have two seasons – winter and construction. Spring is often considered the unofficial start to construction season with thousands of contractors and homeowners alike preparing for their dig projects. Call or click before you dig is crucial to ensuring safe excavation, preventing damages to buried infrastructure and of course, it is the law.
TransCanada recently launched a Youth Energy Safe Award, to recognize non-profit organizations for completing safe digging projects. This program encourages youth-based organizations to click before they dig by incentivizing them with a $1,000 grant. To qualify, youth-based organizations need to submit an application form with their One Call ticket number, as well as contact information. Examples of digging projects include planting trees, shrubs or flowerbeds, installing a mailbox or fence or building a deck.

Once a completed application is received, TransCanada will ensure that the requirements are met and then submit a charitable grant to the recipient organization in acknowledgement of their commitment to safety and community service.
