Enhancing Quality of Life

Our mission as a family is to engage with the community, provide financial grants that have strategic value and fulfill an ongoing commitment to enhancing the quality of life in our city and province.

Our community contributions are not specialized. We support a variety of worthy charitable organizations across many sectors. In the past, we have funded charities focused on social services, culture, education and health.
