 SHELL CANADA CONTRIBUTES $5 MILLION TO
 CULTURAL, HEALTH, EDUCATIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS
 CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- While the national economy faltered in 1991 and this affected the earnings of Shell Canada (Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary: SHC), the company's corporate contributions program provided $5 million to non-profit Canadian cultural, health, educational and environmental organizations.
 "I am proud of Shell Canada's continuing record in community support," said Jack MacLeod, president and chief executive officer. "The programs and institutions supported through our contributions program help fulfill the growing and changing needs of our society. Community involvement is a long-term investment of the corporate sector whose important role must be maintained in a difficult economic climate."
 Shell's contributions program supported higher education at Canadian universities and technical colleges with more than $1.3 million in 1991. Another $2.7 million supported programs and institutions across Canada where the company has operations. In addition, the Shell Environmental Fund approved more than 450 projects for approximately $1 million.
 Among the major projects supported in 1991 were the following: $750,000 (over 5 years) to the University of Calgary Building on the Vision Campaign and $550,000 to United Way campaigns nationally. Provincial highlights of Shell's contributions program include funding to the Institute Cardiologie de Montreal; Sarnia General Hospital; Recycling Council of Ontario; Nature Conservancy of Canada; Royal Winnipeg Ballet; Central Speech and Hearing Clinic of Manitoba; and Richmond (B.C.) Community Services program.
 Shell Canada also supported groups in which employees volunteer their personal time. The Community Service Fund, managed by Shell people, provided up to $1,500 each to qualifying organizations.
