Impact Every Day
Our commitment to communities.
By focusing on making an Impact Every Day we support our people to make an impact in their communities year-round. For more than 20 years, we have collectively demonstrated our commitment to the community through firm-funded time to volunteer on projects that address issues that are most important locally. Our people have also donated money and time to nonprofits, launched workplace giving campaigns, and supported government response. In these challenging times, our colleagues in Canada, Chile, and around the world, are making an impact every day in so many ways.
How our people are making an impact in their communities as of FY22:
In 2022, after a two-year hiatus, Impact Day returned on October 21 and it was a resounding success: our people across Canada enthusiastically connected with their local communities and lived our Purpose—to make an impact that matters. On Impact Day, more than 2,150 of our purpose-led professionals volunteered over 7,900 hours across 100+ community organizations in Canada in support of our WorldClass, WorldClimate and community initiatives. They mentored students, immigrants, and refugees, tested the water quality in local waterways, organized food drives, and more.
