Caring Company Program

What is a Caring Company?

Caring Companies invest a minimum of 1% of their pre-tax profits back into the communities they serve.

With the help of Imagine Canada, businesses can become recognized Caring Companies and help set the standard for corporate community investment in Canada.

How can my business become a Caring Company?

Imagine Canada will help you calculate how you can become a Caring Company.

Your company's 1% investment can come from three main areas:

  • Cash and in-kind contributions
  • Volunteerism
  • Management costs

How do I calculate the 1% to become a Caring Company?

Imagine Canada aligns its terminology and community investment measurement guidance with the principles of LBG (London Benchmarking Group) Canada. 

This alignment encourages every business to measure its community investment in an open and consistent way, and will unlock enormous potential for benchmarking and reporting on community investment leadership in Canada and internationally.
