Supporting STEM Innovation

NOVA Chemicals donated $2M to Lambton College in 2015 to fund a new Health & Research Centre. The donation is part of the company’s commitment to supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Lambton is a college of applied arts and technology in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, with approximately 3,500 full-time and 6,500 part-time students.

“We are eager to see the benefits that the new Centre will have on the students and in the community,” said Tom Thompson, Regional Manufacturing Director, NOVA Chemicals. “Investing in the communities where we operate is important to us.”

As one of the region’s largest industrial employers, NOVA Chemicals has had a longstanding partnership with the college. Since 2008, the company has supported 224 co-op students from the College and hired 118 graduates. The donation is the single largest educational investment ever made by the company.
