Many people working for the engineering, construction and operation preparations for the NWR Sturgeon Refinery, whether staff or contractors, have ties to family or friends in Fort McMurray.

Given the tragic state of emergency, many people are wondering how they may be able to assist in some way, or how they can get further information.
