The Heritage Community Foundation would like to thank the following website sponsors and supporters:

Imperial Oil Limited
Imperial Oil Limited has been a leading member of the Canadian energy industry for more than 120 years. One of the largest producers of crude oil and natural gas liquids and a major producer of natural gas, the company is also Canada's largest refiner and marketer of petroleum products, sold primarily under the Esso and Mobil brands, and a major producer of petrochemicals. 

During 2003, Imperial provided more than $9 million in support to various initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life in Canada.  This included more than $6 million in contributions from the Imperial Oil Foundation to more than 400 non-profit groups across the country.

CKUA Radio Network Inc.
At over 70 years CKUA Radio Network is one of the world's oldest public broadcasters. Based out of Alberta, Canada this broadcaster is rich in tradition and fresh and innovative in its programming and business operations.

CKUA has been governed by the non-profit CKUA Radio Foundation since the Government of Alberta privatized the station in 1994, through a combination of commercials, corporate underwriting of programs, and listener donations. CKUA truly is public radio, freely supported by the listener base.
