Caring Company Program

Canada’s oldest and leading corporate citizenship initiative. The Caring Company Program exists to be the bridge between com­munity-minded companies and their charitable and nonprofit partners.

Companies doing good not only strengthens communities, it also builds brand identity, enhances employee retention and recruitment, and improves public reputation. Community investment is no longer a sideline activity —  today it is considered a key way of doing business!

How it Works

Counting more than 90 Canadian businesses as participants in the Caring Company Program, Imagine Canada recognizes each one as a community investment role model. They lead by example with their commitment to:

  • donate a minimum of 1% of pre-tax profit to community organizations;
  • champion and sustain and least one community investment project; and,
  • publicly report their community investment activities.
