“AMEC has been donating annually to Selkirk for 14 years now and we are committed to providing support whenever possible. We may be an international corporation but we operate in the local environment too and have a responsibility to support the pillars of this community,” says AMEC general manager Eric MacFarlane.

MacFarlane is a graduate of the Selkirk College Business Administration program. It was the start to becoming a certified management accountant, which was the springboard to providing him with numerous career and personal growth opportunities.
