Sustainable lives begin with our support
Giving back to the community is important to the Canwest Team. We believe that giving a hand up empowers others to develop and nourishtheir own success.
Since 2011, Canwest has proudly supported Opportunity International (OI) as our charity of choice.
Opportunity International provides access to financial solutions empowering people living in poverty to transform their lives, their children’s
futures and their communities. The organization’s goal is to replace poverty with sustainability, focusing on five key areas of sustainability:
women, agriculture, technology, education and business leadership.
Canwest’s goal is to nurture dignity and provide funding, technology and training so that recipients can alleviate the pain of poverty for
themselves and their family.
Our main fundraiser, "DAY OF OPPORTUNITY" is embraced by our employees and vendors, whereby each person donates a day’s pay
each year to help eliminate poverty. This campaign has been incredibly successful, and to date, Canwest staff and supporters have
donated over $200,000 to Opportunity International’s South American unit.
We will continue to work together to support and empower others. Find out more about Opportunity International.
