Caring Companies set the standard for corporate community investment in Canada.
Participants contribute at least 1% of pre-tax profit in support of the communities where their employees and customers live and work.
How to calculate the 1%
Imagine Canada aligns its terminology and community investment measurement guidance with the principles of LBG 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.
