Corporate Social Responsibility Program

We believe in healthy communities and our colleagues practice this value professionally and in their lives outside of work. As an organization, we believe that we have an obligation to help shape the communities in which we live and work. One way that we do this, is through our Corporate Social Responsibility Program, which is based around two ideas:

  • We have our greatest impact as a team

We have focused our community efforts around three specific causes.  These three causes have been chosen because we believe that they are strong influencing factors towards building a healthy community. The causes are:

  • Income & Social Status

United Way

Each year, all of our markets are proud to be a contributor to the United Way Campaign. We have chosen United Way for its mission to create positive change in the communities in which we live and work. It also has a clear policy on accountability in relation to stewardship of donated funds.

Food Banks Canada

We are a proud supporter of Food Banks Canada and have made it a holiday tradition to make donations in each of our local markets every December.
