Community involvement lies at the heart of our commitment to support the communities in which we live and work, including the support of Aboriginal Nations with whom we partner. Vertex aims to make a difference in the places in which we operate through local economic growth, career opportunities, donations, sponsorship and by empowering/encouraging our team members to become directly involved with various charities and charitable events.
